GLIS Program Overview

Preschool and Early Preschool Program

GLIS offers a Montessori based Early Pre K and Pre k Program. Students attain many important skills -  socially and academically, which will help put them on the right track on the long road of education.  Montessori methods teach skills that utilize hands-on activities and encourage a child to learn at his/her own pace. Montessori style classrooms are student centered and every activity in the room will have a direct and indirect aim. The system is structured in such a way that each child has plenty of freedom within the classroom to develop at his or her own pace under the guidance of the Montessori certified teachers.




 

Curriculum 

Students study subjects mandated by the State of Michigan such as mathematics, English language and literature, reading, writing, social studies, integrated science, physical education, and fine arts. Michigan is a Common Core state; therefore, GLIS uses Common Core standards, which may be found @www.michigan.gov/k-12.  GLIS uses a research based reading and writing program which caters to the needs of a diverse student population and builds students’ capacity to read complex texts. GLIS uses formative and summative assessment to monitor student progress. Students at GLIS take the state assessment known as M-STEP (Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress) yearly so that the school can gauge how well students are mastering state standards. Students in grades 3-8 participate in M-STEP testing.  GLIS also administers another standardized test for students in Kindergarten through second grade, so that the entire school is assessed yearly.  Formative assessments are used throughout the school daily and individual progress.

The school also adheres to ESSA guidelines.  ESSA stands for the Every Student Succeeds Act, which requires that all students in America be taught to high academic standards that will prepare them to succeed in colleges and in careers.

The school fosters in-school competitive and creative activities such as essay contests, student council,  spelling bees, science fair, multicultural fair and Qur’an competition. In addition to in-school activities students go on field trips and join clubs such as 4 H Club to develop debating and critical thinking skills and to learn about STEM topics such as robotics and rocketry.
