Students in grades K-8 attend school at the Doyle campus similar to a "traditional" public school.
The Doyle classroom based-program offers small class sizes and personalized attention. Upon interest in the program, an interview is scheduled to ensure that the parents and students understand the model and requirements of our program; the student handbook is reviewed and the enrollment documentation is completed.
The classroom climate at Long Valley Charter School emphasizes cooperation and collaboration, fostering a dynamic environment that values the constructive nature of learning. Students learn independently, from one another, their teachers, and other adults. Ongoing flexible grouping and regrouping within and between classrooms accommodates diverse learning needs and behaviors. Teachers provide differentiated instruction tailored to the individual needs of each student to ensure success for all students regardless of their learning style, English language proficiency, or socioeconomic background.
The Doyle site has a focus on character education; every Monday students are celebrated and acknowledged at the “Caught Being Good” assembly. Tradition is important to the entire constituency; annual events such as holiday programs, festivals, science fair, and Spring Sing witness great attendance and participation. The school serves as a center for the community.
