iSchool High utilizes a curriculum that is built within the RES curriculum department, it is research based and aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Our school has also created an in-house academic program called the Mastery Based Learning System (MBLS), which is followed by all students.
The MBLS is a student-centered, independent, personalized approach to education. The MBLS is designed to move the instructional power from the teacher and shift it to the student. The role of the instructor in student-centered classrooms is to encourage learners to do more discovery/active learning and to have students learn from each other, the instructor also focuses on constructing authentic, real-life tasks that motivate learner involvement and participation.
Currently, iSchool High Atascocita provides Student Council and Interact Club. Next school year, we will add Yearbook and National Honor Society.
