Destiny Community School believes in a strong academic structure with well managed classrooms and state of the art facilities. We strive to provide a positive, standards based curriculum designed to maximize a student’s potential to succeed, not only in academics, but also as a citizen. Our goal is to impart a strong character based education focusing on discipline, respect for oneself and others and an overall sense of community while also providing a safe learning environment.
We believe that the most relevant and rich learning experiences come from cooperative discovery and challenging subject matter. We see students as capable of much more than rote memorization and repetition. The role of the teacher is to Guide. The role of the parent is to Assist in the learning process. The role of the school is to Provide. The role of the students is to Strive. These four elements working together will help to fill the GAPS in a student’s learning experience.
Destiny Community School recognizes the importance of teaching our student’s personal responsibility, cooperation, courage, and self-esteem. We encourage students and parents to be actively involved in creating and maintaining a school environment that is conducive to learning and promotes individual responsibility and accountability. We expect our students, with the support of their parents/guardians and the school staff members, to take responsibility in creating a positive, orderly, and respectful school setting. Our curriculum design and instructional practices enhance our ability to connect academic learning and character development to applied learning in the workplace, community, and home. The research design of Destiny Community School is to improve each child’s self-concept, thus improving academic performance. The primary focus of the school is to provide the opportunity for each student to learn and facilitate the acquisition of skills, knowledge, and character necessary to survive and thrive in today’s society. We view each student’s character development as important as his or her academic performance. Students are expected to show respect and consideration, including allowing each student equal access to educational opportunities, without interference from others. Destiny Community School is equipped with a premier staff of Arizona certified teachers and the necessary technology, resources, and materials for academic success. Destiny Community School believes the placement of your child in our school to be a sacred trust and views you, parent/guardian, as a vital component in the education and character development of your child. Together, the school and the home can guide and support our students to mature into successful, productive adults. Our parents experience satisfaction due to the progress of their children. Parents work cooperatively with school staff to establish goals and priorities. They are welcomed and valued partners in the educational process.
