Preparing students academically, socially, and emotionally for success today and tomorrow.
We are hiring!
Welcome to Perea Elementary
Perea Elementary is a public charter school located in North Memphis now accepting applications for its inaugural kindergarten class. Opening in Fall 2018, our school will bring a unique, nationally-acclaimed elementary school model to Memphis.
In partnership with the Momentous Institute (Dallas, TX) and Perea Preschool (Memphis, TN), Perea Elementary School will apply thoroughly researched best practices to prepare our students academically, socially, and emotionally for success today and tomorrow.
Our holistic approach to education prepares students for success beyond the classroom. Perea utilizes a whole-person approach to child development that recognizes the important roles of family and environment.
We care about our students, their parents, and their families and encourage families to be an active part of our school community.
Our Teaching Model
At Perea, we focus learning on three pillars of education:
We believe that students must be active participants in their learning and construct meaning for themselves. Thus, we foster academic intelligence through the implementation of rigorous, standards-based curricula, in a flexible learning environment.
We do not ascribe to a one-size-fits-all model of education because we appreciate that every student comes to us with individual learning needs and styles. Our curricula and instructional methods combine structure with student choice and couples high expectations with differentiation.
While students ultimately attend school to master academic standards and skills, we believe that social-emotional learning stands side-by-side with academic learning.
If students do not develop their social-emotional intelligence, such deficiencies will impact students’ ability to succeed academically.
We view interpersonal intelligence as the capacity for adults – be it parents or school staff – to form meaningful, effective relationships that ultimately support student learning. We aim to create opportunities for parents to engage with the school, other parents, and their children through enriched family engagement.
In doing so, we believe that parents will gain an authentic understanding of the school and of other parents as well as deepen their understanding of and relationship with themselves and their child(ren), which we firmly believe will empower parents to actively invest in and support their child(ren)’s learning at school and home.
