By our friends at VERITAS Community School
As early as 1974, the idea of charter schools has been part of the American educational vernacular, yet many parents still wonder if they are “charter” parents. As a charter school leader, I have the great pleasure of knowing my parents on a first name basis. We talk in the carpool line; we chat when they sign in as Reading Buddies; and we discuss concerns on the phone and in conferences. These are parents who simply want the best for their child. Does that describe you? If so, perhaps you too could consider a charter school for your child. I’d love to speak to you about VERITAS Community School, CFA and all that we offer to help you decide if VERITAS is a good fit for your family.
VERITAS is a public charter elementary school that serves children in grades Kindergarten through 3rd grade. For the 2016-2017 school year, we will add fourth grade, and in 2017-2018, we will add fifth. Charter schools exist to serve as laboratories for a new educational model, and VERITAS’s model includes a focus on three ideas: Targeted Academics, teaching a rigorous curriculum with individuated instruction; Health and Wellness; leading students in 90 minutes of exercise each school day and offering freshly prepared meals; and the Peaceful Classroom, offering lessons in conflict resolution to empower students to create harmony.
We meet the needs of the whole child from the time they arrive through Morning Movement, in Literacy, while they learn Mandarin, as they exercise in PE, when they take a Movement Break in Math class; and when they build a body system in Science class.
As a small school, the staff knows each child, notices any differences, and works to meet each child’s needs. This could be a “Are you doing okay?” for a bubbly child whose gone quiet, a pat on the shoulder for the mellow child whose gone rowdy, and a team meeting for a student whose gone from consistently achieving to consistently failing. We recognize and respond to the small changes before they become permanent problems.

We still have a few seats available for this school year, and our Open Enrollment period for the 2016-2017 school year opens January 4th. We will have three Kindergarten classes and two classes each for grades 1-4. Join us for our Open House on January 19th at 5:30PM. Bring your children and your questions. You’ll hear from students, parents, and our Founder and Head of School, Katy Ridnouer. We will look forward to speaking with you soon!
