Arete Academy of Exceptional Education is committed to partnering with parents to educate and support twice-exceptional students — gifted students who also have learning disabilities — so they can learn the academic, social and emotional skills needed to overcome their disabilities, reach their full potential and apply their gifts to make lasting contributions to the world.
To provide a supportive and challenging environment for bright students who learn differently.
We demonstrate respect for ourselves by engaging in opportunities to build self awareness, self confidence and self-advocate; We demonstrate respect for our community by treating our physical space and materials with care and behave in a way that allow others to learn and help teachers to support all students.
We contribute to our school community by acknowledging and cultivating our individual strengths. We use our strengths in positive ways to support those around us.
We understand that in order to earn a deep understanding of self and others in our community, we must support the physical, social, intellectual, and emotional growth of everyone in our community.
We understand that our individual life experiences influence our views, behavior, and path to our success. We acknowledge that we all have areas for growth and development in our lives and when we are faced with a challenge or disagreement, we respond with empathy, understanding, and persistence.
