What You Need to Know about Northshore Family Partnership
We offer a variety of enrichment classes to encourage student engagement and foster learning in a fun, supportive environment. You can see our full list of available classes for the 21/22 school year HERE.
- NFP is a very family-friendly school, where parents and staff work together to engage and educate students.
- NFP will serve grades K-8 for the 2022-23 school year.
- With the oversight of a certificated teacher, the parent is the primary educator. Parents will provide the majority of instructional hours outside of NFP class time.
- Parents will provide standards based instruction in all subjects that are required for promotion to the next grade with support and mentoring by certificated NFP teachers.
- NFP has onsite classes that extend and enrich subjects taught at home.
- Students may enroll in as few as 1 class or as many as 12 hours (subject to change) of class time weekly.
- Students may opt to take 0 classes and just meet with an advisor weekly to discuss home learning.
- Classes are project-based, collaborative, and student-centered.
- At the beginning of the school year you will meet with an advisor to put together your SLP (Student Learning Plan) with learning goals for the year.
- Each month you will report on your child’s progress.
- Weekly contact between teacher and student is required. This can be done in many ways - in class, or, if a student is unable to attend class that week: by phone, Facetime, Zoom, email, or video, etc., telling about the learning that took place that week. This must be a 2-way communication between student and advisor. If your child comes to a class that satisfies weekly contact.
- Learning at home is very different from learning in a whole-class environment. A teacher advisor will help you plan your at home learning space and pace your at home learning.
- The parent works with their child at their own level and pace be it below, at, or above grade level.
