Each student at Echelon Academy has a student Blueprint that specifies key learning goals and levels of achievement. Plans are designed by our director, teachers, and parents. Learning plans are reviewed and modified as necessary. Regularly, the school faculty meets to discuss and actively manage individual student progress.
Echelon Academy employs the very best research-based curriculum and instructional methodologies. Our curriculum content is carefully aligned to the learning standards outlined in the Maryland Common Core State Curriculum. Where necessary, appropriate modifications and adaptations are made to ensure all students can access academic material at personally challenging levels.
Echelon Academy offers a journey of engaged learning through the teaching of arts. A positive and encouraging learning community where achievement happens more efficiently and with ease as teachers and students work cooperatively, heading the same direction, traveling on the thrust of one another, standing by one another, and honking in encouragement.
Esh’e lan – a squadron V formation which allows geese to conserve energy by using the uplift of air from the goose in front of it. By flying in a V formation the whole flock adds at least 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own. This formation allows each bird to have an unobstructed field of vision, allowing flock members to see each other and communicate while in flight. The geese take turns leading; there isn’t one designated leader. As one bird tires, it drops to the back of the formation and another takes its place.
