TLC Mission Statement
Triumphant Learning Center’s staff believes the students of the Gila Valley can and will achieve to a higher level. We are committed to the education of the total child in a positive, respectful, and nurturing environment. Excellence in academics and character is the standard of measure for TLC’s students. TLC offers an alternative for parents, students, and teachers who want an active roll in shaping future leaders by
* Developing life-long learning through critical thinking skills, cooperative problem solving, respect for self and community, etc.
* Practicing and developing fundamental values included in The Book of Virtues (self-discipline, compassion, responsibility, friendship, work, courage, perseverance, honesty, loyalty, faith) and the Character Counts program (responsibility, fairness, citizenship, trustworthy, caring, respect.)
* Proving enrichment opportunities to broaden each student’s horizons and experiences.
Academic Goals & Educational Focus
TLC offers a quality education focusing on reading, writing, arithmetic, and responsibility. Reading is our highest priority because it is crucial to all other learning. Personal responsibility is also extremely important, and is taught through character training, community service, and code of conduct. Using criterion assessments and direct observations, students will demonstrate one year’s academic and personal growth. TLC’s goal is for each student to constantly aspire for academic and personal excellence.
Education is the service TLC is providing to its clients (parents)
Parents are ultimately responsible for the education of their children. Today’s parents must shop around to find the best possible education or the type of school for their children. Some will choose a private school, others will home school, while still others will choose public school. If parents opt for public education, there may be several choices: traditional, magnet, alternative, or charter schools. Parents then "hire" (with tax dollars) the school which best fits their ultimate educational goals, and they expect specific results. TLC is the school you have chosen and hired to educate your children.
TLC provides a challenging curriculum with high academic standards, but this is not a rigid "one size fits all" education. Each year students are academically assessed. The teacher, with input from the parents and student, will determine the specific needs of each individual student. If a child is below grade level, the teacher will provide the appropriate curriculum at school and home for the student to catch up. If parents choose not to implement this, the student may not be able to progress. Students who are above grade level will be given challenging assignments which will keep them motivated.
