themes and content into the instruction of core subject areas to
sustain educational engagement of each student. We have recently

sports experience to benefit the health and physical aspects of our
students. Eligible student/athletes will have the opportunity to
play AAU sports on school teams in the evenings and on weekends, in
addition to community and intramural sports activities. The
coaching staff works to prepare students to complete at their

About The Menta GroupThe Menta Group's mission is "To provide
innovative solutions to critical problems in education and human
services." Menta brings a framework of educational practices that
have been designed and are supported through evidence based
practices. Menta's collaborative process with various school and
community stakeholders has resulted in programs designed to
educate, support, challenge, empower and celebrate students who
present with a range of academic, social and emotional needs. At
the beginning of a student's experience with Menta, a collaborative
meeting is held that includes the student, significant people in
their lives, Menta staff and other professionals as appropriate.
During that meeting, a comprehensive assessment of the student's
past, present and future desires is used to establish a student
centered plan (MAP) that serves as a foundation of the student's
Menta programming. A guiding principle of Menta is 'we do not give
up', while also holding our students and staff to high
expectations. The educational offerings at a Menta program provides
students with a quality education that is designed to nurture and
enhance the skills and maturity needed to meet the challenges of
being productive adults and citizens in a rapidly changing 21st
century world. Menta's programs utilize a unique curricular
framework that relies on the Expanded Menta Method and Trauma
Informed Practices as the foundational principles for the teaching,
counseling and mentoring work done by our highly trained staff.
Personalized learning is the hub of our strategic curricular design
intended to meet the needs of every student. Starting with the end
in mind (learning targets and academic goals), a leveraging of
current technologies coupled with highly trained instructional
facilitators creates a rich learning environment supporting all
student needs. Menta's learning spaces are unique and specially
designed to combine traditional teacher/student interaction with
state of the art technology and learning innovations. Those
learning spaces are flexible and can accommodate a variety of
learning activities, such as inquiry learning and project based
learning. Our spaces are designed to mimic productive spaces
learners would find in business and/or corporate environments,
thereby helping students achieve a mind-set designed for adult
learning and work.Professional Associations and/or PartnershipsThe
