The Phoenix Academy teaching methods are guided by the philosophy of individualizing education to meet the needs of all students. The processes used to accomplish this are;
1. Data-Driven Decision Making (DDD): We use data about how a student is progressing to create individualized lessons based on that information.
2. Daily 5 for reading and Daily 3 for math: A research backed process that maximizes engagement and small group instruction with the teacher.
3. Mastery Learning: When students are not successful in a given lesson or unit, we re-teach and re-assess until students are successful.
4. Art Integration: Proven to reduce boredom, increase critical thinking, motivation and a variety of other 21st century skills.
