Academic offerings at Charles Mooney School:
Charles Mooney School is a Pre-K through 8th grade STEAM network school in the Cleveland Metropolitan School System.
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math education.
We are proud to provide students strong literacy instruction in conjunction with the STEAM emphasis. Students at Charles Mooney School will take part in instruction that is differentiated to meet the students’ needs as well as being given individualized attention by caring, nurturing and well-educated teachers. Teachers assess every students’ current level of knowledge and plan their instruction to meet the needs of the individual student as well as the class as a whole. Students will take part in learning centers / stations to provide hands-on learning, as well as group and individual projects to peak their interest and meet the demands of the grade level standards in order to excel in every classroom.
Every day, in every classroom, the teachers, staff and students take part in Responsive Classroom practices in every area of the building. Learning academics is only possible when students are participating within a school environment based on respect, community, and understanding. We choose to discuss, train and participate in Responsive Classroom practices as a whole school to build this environment where learning is a priority and where students and educators show respect for one another. Responsive Classroom is used in order to have a calm and orderly school that grows academic importance.
