Why Kindezi Academy?
Our core belief is that every child can learn and every child is a leader. Because of this, we operate a model that ensures each child is viewed as an individual and receives an education that meets their specific needs. Through small group instruction, two teachers in each classroom, and student leadership opportunities, we ensure each child reaches their highest potential.We set ambitious goals of 1.5 years of growth for our students and work relentlessly to meet and exceed these goals.
Kindezi Academy's model is rooted in the African philosophy of Kindezi - where families, educators, and communities share the collective responsibility and joy for educating children and developing them as future leaders. We view families and communities as partners in our students' education and development. Our students begin each morning with a community-wide morning meeting and share in family breakfast, class chants, and shout outs. Kindezi hosts monthly family fun nights, workshops, community dinners, and festivals to consistently engage and strengthen partnerships with our families and community.
At Kindezi, we believe education should be fun and engaging. Our students learn through hands - on projects, music and song, field experiences, and more. Our classrooms feature flexible seating areas where students choose their optimal learning environment each day. We regularly track our students' progress and celebrate their successes. Friday assemblies provide a festive atmosphere for the Kindezi community to celebrate our C.E.O.s (Chief Examples for Others), spotlight successful classrooms, and engage in structured play and competition between staff and students.
