The role of ASPIRE is to support and enhance the academic experience of all students in grades PreK – 12. The department is designed to meet the continually changing needs of both students and teachers. Working alongside teachers, parents, and students, the ASPIRE team supports and enriches the learning process for all students where a need is identified. In providing proactive support for both students and teachers, all are empowered to achieve a higher level of success.

Each division has a coordinator to directly serve their students.  The ASPIRE team collaborates with teachers, parents, and students to determine the type and frequency of support needed for each individual. Supports include study skills, organization and time management, as well as direct support from the Math Lab and Writing Center. Additionally, reasonable accommodations are made for students with documented learning differences.
