Flexible, tiered, academic scheduling

Students also benefit from the flexibility of a multi-tiered academic program in which they advance at their own pace as they gain mastery of each subject.

There are three tiers: Remedial Classes for math, 阅读, and 写作; Modified Classes, which serve as a bridge between remedial and standard tiers and include math, 阅读, 写作 and core classes; and Standard Courses for students working at grade level.  Instructors of these classes are certified in each class’s content area and work with students to meet state standards and develop academic competencies that will prepare them for college expectations and the adult world.

课程 tiers are fluid — students may shift between them depending on their mastery level. 例如, one student may be scheduled for remedial 阅读, 修改写作, 和社会研究, along with standard math and science classes.

An enriched curriculum produces well-rounded students

Vibrant enrichment and recreational programs engage students both on and off campus in structured activities. Brehm students not only have fun, they grow culturally and emotionally, 设定并实现目标, and learn to work collaboratively. They also develop new 社会 and self-advocacy 技能, gain self-esteem and gain momentum for a lifetime of success.

The Carbondale and nearby St. Louis communities provide a rich array of educational, recreational, and cultural opportunities.
