Curriculum and Instruction

QUALIFICATIONS OF TEACHERS: Our teachers are qualified, competent Christian teachers
who have expressed their love and concern for children. They have demonstrated their teaching effectiveness. All teachers K-5th grade must have a minimum of a BA in Education. 

METHODS OF INSTRUCTION : Our faculty members use a variety of teaching methods and styles. They recognize that individuals have different learning styles. The most effective instruction and learning methods are selected, while taking into consideration the subjects and individuals being taught.

CURRICULUM MATERIALS: The learning materials used in our religion classes are published by our Lutheran publishing house and the Christian faith is integrated into all subject areas by the classroom teachers. All of the other materials are selected from national publishers and are Georgia State adopted

EVALUATION MATERIALS: The academic progress of students is monitored in many ways. Teachers use daily assignments, portfolios, tests, and other classroom activities to access students progress. These are used to determine grades placed on quarterly report cards. The purpose of this evaluation is to help students experience success, not to provide negative feedback.

SPECIAL NEEDS: Faith Lutheran School strives to accommodate children with varying abilities, whose potential achievement is not incapacitated by specific learning disabilities, emotional disturbances, or physical impairments. In this regard, FLS is limited in professional staff prepared to give assistance to children with the aforementioned conditions. Children with these impairments are not automatically excluded; rather, it must be determined through the application and screening process if the staff and programs of FLS can meet the child's educational and developmental needs.

Our accrediting institution approves the scope and sequence of the courses of study. Textbooks are selected on the basis of how well they serve the curriculum and meet the required goals and academic competencies as set by our faculty and School Ministry Board (SMB). The textbooks (curriculum) are reviewed by the staff and SMB on a six-year rotating basis.
