How will PUC iPrep ensure that all students are challenged?

Teachers will offer differentiated, independent research projects and advanced learning opportunities that allow students to participate in out-of grade-level activities. PUC iPrep will support internship opportunities as well as the arts to meet the needs of Gifted and Talented and Accelerated learners.

How will PUC iPrep meet the needs of students with Disabilities?

Students with Individualized Education Programs (IEP) or 504 Plans will be fully included in the general education classroom. Teachers will differentiate lessons by providing inclusion students with guided notes, preferential seating in the classroom, and accommodated exams. Both visual and auditory aids will be provided, as well as multi-layered strategies that meet the auditory, kinesthetic, and socio-emotional needs of learners, as detailed in their IEPs.

How will PUC iPrep determine and identify students who are struggling?

The school will implement a data-driven approach on an ongoing, regular basis. Intervention will be informed by diagnostics, in-class formative and summative assessments, and interim benchmark assessments. Staff will use assessment results to identify areas of growth and to inform methods/strategies used to deliver instruction and interventions.

What athletic programs/sports does PUC offer?

Common sports at the PUC Middle School level include flag football, baseball, softball, basketball, soccer, and volleyball.

What is S.T.E.A.M?

S.T.E.A.M. stands for Science & Technology, interpreted through Engineering & the Arts, all based in Mathematical elements. It is a framework for teaching that is based on natural ways of learning and customizable for ALL types of students. Shifting to a STEAM perspective means understanding learning contextually, but also providing a living and adaptable learning structure for ever-changing personal and global development.

How does PUC iPrep handle bullying?

PUC has an in-depth school-wide Bullying Intervention Program that includes Awareness, Consequences and Actions. There are established procedures for Reporting, Pre-Investigation, Investigation, Determination of Misconduct and an Intervention Process (differentiated between minor and major incidents).

What electives will you offer?

At all PUC schools, the arts are considered a core subject and are viewed as an essential component of student learning and success. The arts taught at each site range in discipline, based on student interest. They include visual art, theatre, music, and/or dance.

What kinds of afterschool programs will you offer?

PUC Schools offers our students the opportunity to participate in our comprehensive after school programs. Each school has an after school program that is built customized to the interests of the students and staff of the school. Homework support is provided and clubs may include cooking, photography, film, media arts, and physical activity.

What are the specifics around entry age for Kinder?

Districts must admit children at the beginning of the school year (or whenever they move into a district) if they will be five years of age on or before September 1 (EC Section 48000[a]).

Pursuant to EC 48000(c), a child is eligible for TK if the child will have his or her fifth birthday between September 2 and December 2.

How do I enroll my child?

PUC Schools are lottery based.  Each student completes a space request that is entered into the lottery.  Students are enrolled based on number of seats available.

What information do I need to know about the lottery process?

The lottery is public.  For each space request pulled for K and 1st, the family will be placed in their preferred language track.  Once a track is full, the remaining space requests pulled for the lottery will be placed in the open language track. 6th and 7th grade lottery is based only on one language track. Families will be notified by mail of their acceptance.

Do you have wellness policy and meal program?

Yes.  It is published on our PUC Schools Website.

What type of counseling services do you offer?

All PUC Schools have clinical counseling.  We have clinical supervisors who train and support a team of counseling interns at each school site.

How do you account for the age differences and needs with a K-8 program?

PUC Schools has run multi age campuses for many years.  We have K-5, 6-8 and 9-12.  Some of our campuses hold K-5 with 6-8 and 6-8 with 9-12.  Leaders, teachers, staff and parents engage in professional development and collaboration to ensure the students are receiving a powerful education with focus on academics, operations and culture.

How do you support matriculation into High School?

Each of our middle schools that end in 8th grade engage with our PUC High Schools to promote their programs and their lottery process.  Additionally, local resident high schools often visit our schools to promote their programs.
