Under the direction of Ryan Bender, Head of School in Training, students at The Learning Center Charter School were recognized for perfect attendance for the first semester of the 2019-2020 school year.
“It’s important to honor students that have perfect attendance,” said Bender. “So much happens each and every day at school and missing days or even hours can be disruptive to a student’s learning.” Bender added that attendance is important because students are more likely to succeed in academics when they attend school consistently.
Also, the school as a whole was recently awarded the Academic Growth Award Certificate from North Carolina Department of Public Instruction for achieving expected academic progress during the 2018-2019 school year.
Academic growth is an indication of the progress that students in the school make over the course of a school year.
“Our philosophy of education is built upon the idea that young learners need to be exposed to a broad array of rich learning experiences,” said Bender. “Our teachers and students work hard every single day and we celebrate that success.”
