Academics

Making a Difference to Miami

BWLA delivers a strong academic-focused approach to learning specific to each grade level. Our teacher/student ratio is 1:17. Our vision is to not only to teach students how to use technology but to guide students in acquiring skills needed to be successful in the 21st century. Beginning in Kindergarten and ending with the final day of 8th grade, our students are challenged with an articulated curriculum that allows children to learn to their strengths. Through an effective assessment system, teachers are able to determine the level of learning for each child. From these assessments, instruction is designed for alignment with student abilities.
