Mandarin at College Achieve Paterson!

This week, join us as we take a trip around the world! 

Here at College Achieve Paterson, we recognize the value of a global community. Our students are supported by peers, staff & teachers that are from all over the world and we are proud to represent over 30 countries and 10 languages just within our school building. We are committed to raising leaders that will influence their city, their country and yes, the world! In support of that goal, we offer students an opportunity to participate in second language education clubs designed to equip our scholars with a diverse understanding of culture, language and identity. Studies show that language learning has a significant impact on cultural awareness and acceptance. By exposing our students to new cultures and languages, we undoubtedly set them up for success, while simultaneously contributing to a more loving world where everyone has  access to opportunities, no matter their racial or ethnic background.

It's no secret to College Achieve Paterson that science is important!

It’s no secret to us that science is importance! At College Achieve Paterson our elementary school scholars receive more than 5 hours a week, 22 hours a month, and 195 hours a year of science, which is double the national average. Our scholars must be ready to take their roles as citizens, employees, and family members in a rapidly changing world and a highly competitive global job market. The key ingredient in improving the quality of students learning are the experiences provided by a motivating teacher. Is there anything more exciting to a young child than creating slime? Teachers like Mrs. Hernandez know when science is well taught, and student engagement is high, science can be the academic subject that keeps a child's natural love of learning alive. We all know it takes a village to raise a child, but it takes College Achieve Paterson to RISE above!

Why I Chose College Achieve Paterson

At College Achieve Paterson we believe that reading is essential for a child’s success. It develops our scholars' mind, imagination, language and listening skills. With the ability to read our scholars have the power to educate themselves. One strategy we put into action is "Sight word entry." To enter their classroom, our scholars read the sight words posted on the wall. The "Sight word entry" method is a tremendous fundamental tool to develop vocabulary and ability to read. Our scholars have shown vast improvement using it.
