KEA Homeschool in Wailua has openings for enrollment for the 2009-2010 school year. KEA is a unique, well-structured academic program. Uniqueness comes in the form of a nurturing, one-room schoolhouse, with several different grades of students, in the one room. The benefits of a multi-age classroom are many. There is a strong emphasis on cooperative learning and students mastering skills before moving on. It allows accommodation of the diversity of learning rates and styles. Younger children exemplify and are stimulated intellectually by older students.
All basic skills and academic subjects are covered, (Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science, Geography, PE, and Art) including for those students who have learning differences. Other emphasis is on learning independence, study skills, cooperative learning and responsibility.
Class size kept to 12 students. The benefit of a low student-to-teacher ratio is that educational or disciplinary concerns can be addressed immediately, in an effective and caring way. KEA Homeschool is taught by Robin Yost, a credentialed, experienced teacher with over 30 years experience in public, private, regular and special education. She can be reached at 822-1775.
