At Einstein, we want our elementary students to feel that school is the most awesome place in the world. Therefore, we nurture our children's intellectual capacity by teaching them how to be STRONG learners and critical thinkers. We not only teach, but we nurture the whole child. Our scholars spend most of their day exploring, analyzing, discussing, and synthesizing texts, complex math problems, intriguing science experiments, and creative works of art.
Our approach to math gives students powerful conceptual understanding along with computational speed and fluency, so they can confidently and productively apply mathematical skills in new and unfamiliar contexts and use their understanding to solve real-world problems.
The Einstein literacy curriculum introduces students to engaging and culturally competent literature that emphasizes critical thinking, knowledge building, and the thoughtful discussion of ideas.
As we increasingly become more of a science and technology-based society, we prioritize preparing students for the world. S.T.E.A.M is an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.
Einstein Schools offers after school programming focused on STEAM. We partner with 21st Century Community Works of Louisiana to offer our students multiple opportunities to develop their passions. As such, we offer educational enrichment activities, including art, cooking, and music. We also offer sports programming, photography, and theatre.
Social & Emotional
Einstein uses Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) to encourage a safe school environment. Students do not learn best under “no excuse” discipline rules, so we use PBIS for constant messaging that students are safe, responsible, respectful, and ready to learn. Mentoring students works much better than suspending young learners! Our effective and regular positive interventions are bolstered with on-site school psychologists, inclusive multicultural programming, and universal English Language Learner teaching strategies.
Einstein Schools are deeply rooted in the New Orleans East area of the city. This area is known for the uniquely high population of African-American, Latino and Vietnamese families. As a result, Einstein Schools work extra hard to engage parents and provided various measure of communication. We know that the success of our students and the positive impact on the surrounding community are connected to the engagement and knowledge of our Einstein parents.
