Imagine Foundations at Leeland Public Charter School’s educational philosophy is grounded in the belief that, to help scholars thrive academically, learning must involve more than skill acquisition and standardized test scores. Our diversified, interdependent approach focuses on the individual scholar and provides an array of resources that each needs to learn, to solve problems, and to create new ideas. 

Our Values can be broken down into what we term “The 3 C’s”:

  • Content Rich Curriculum: Through the adoption of the Core Knowledge sequence, we provide students with an integrated educational approach that places a heavy emphasis on classic literature, mathematics, geography, art, physical education, and music.
  • Culture That Shapes Character: We consciously and rigorously work to develop the character of every Imagine Foundations at Leeland student by dedicating the first 20 minutes of each school day to the teaching of positive character traits. We reinforce these teachings by incorporating character-forming rituals throughout the school day. Students also benefit from having monthly prominent character education speakers and award ceremonies.
  • Meaningful Community: We teach students the importance of community by working collaboratively with our parents, guardians, and local community stakeholders in pursuit of our mission
