Building 21st Century Citizens

Agnor-Hurt provides a safe and trusting learning environment that embraces diversity and our community’s rich cultural tableau. We are committed to empowering students to be creative lifelong learners and productive global citizens through relationships, compassion and perseverance. As 21st century learners, students will develop into individuals who can adapt, create, collaborate, succeed, and meet the challenges of a constantly evolving world.

School Highlights

A core belief of the Agnor-Hurt instructional program is that the foundations of reading and mathematical thinking support lifelong learning and 21st century citizenship. Students are challenged on a daily basis to develop the skills they need to solve new and increasingly complex problems and to develop the skills they need to read and write with meaningful purpose across their entire curriculum. A hallmark of the school’s innovative work in this area is the commitment to a multi-age instructional program. The multi-age program continues to expand in the school and allows for rich student and teacher experiences through team-taught, interdisciplinary classes of students from multiple grade levels. This instructional methodology allows for a high degree of personalization of instruction, developing experiences for students based on individual academic needs, instead of simply relying on age or grade level.

The school also takes great pride in embracing diversity and the rich and varied cultural backgrounds that students and community members bring to the school. A goal for all students is that they become empowered, lifelong, global learners. This is discovered in the classroom through the school’s International Portal, a program unique to Agnor-Hurt. The portal provides teachers with a video uplink system enabling them to partner with other schools across the globe to learn about other cultures and build strong relationships that will last a lifetime. All students experience this enriching program multiple times each year.

The school also is focused on having students serve the local community by using project-based learning to solve community problems, such as childhood hunger. Students in grades K-5 are developing unique and innovative ways to give back to the surrounding community through this program.
