At EnCompass Academy, we believe that education Starts with Self, is Guided by Families, Engaged in Community, and Rooted in Ancestors. Our specialty is in seeing and building upon children's strengths and supporting adults to hold strong systems and relationships in place in service of children. We strive to teach and reach the whole child; our students thrive through a safe, vibrant, culturally-responsive, and caring school culture. We teach students to use academic language and critical thinking as well as traditional and computer-based strategies to maximize their level of learning in reading and math. EnCompass Academy structures the school day in intentional, rigorous and meaningful ways to develop the whole child: science-rich learning, authentic family-school partnership and quality enrichment (visual arts, singing, mindful drumming, fitness & nutrition, African Dance, technology & engineering, social-emotional skill development). Our beautiful campus oasis - with award-winning design and green space - has rolling lawns, native plant-lined pathways, garden beds, an outdoor amphitheater, a multipurpose auditorium, and state-of-the-art 81st Avenue Community Library. We offer a daily student salad bar lunch option, fruit and vegetable snack 3x/week, mentoring and a strong health and fitness program. Our pursuit of providing a well-rounded TK-5th Grade school experience has yielded the following Special Distinctions and Designations: Arts Learning Anchor School, Reading Reward School, Blended Learning Pilot School, Science and Literacy Cohort School, SEEDS of Early Literacy Initiative TK Cohort, and shared campus California AIR Health Award of Achievement.
