Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Help every child learn to read quickly without frustration, fear, or failure.

The FIRST FOCUS™ System is a proven, easy, logical, effective and cost affordable solution to learning beginning reading and language skills.

The FIRST FOCUS™ System is a condensed version of the most important elements required to read, write and spell. The FIRST FOCUS™ System is phonics based and taught in small groups. The small group instruction capitalizes on positive interaction, minimal waiting for turns, constant participation and individual attention. It's been proven that small groups of children stimulate each other and make practicing the most basic elements of this language arts program more fun and more effective.

The FIRST FOCUS™ System uses a "direct" teaching approach, which helps children establish proper habits that assure success and efficiency with each new concept. Logically sequenced steps, connections between skills, focus, routine, efficiency and camaraderie make the FIRST FOCUS™ System the most successful reading program of its kind.

The truth is The FIRST FOCUS™ System provides children with immediate reading success, self-confidence, increased self esteem, and may be most importantly the joy and pleasure of reading.
