SRC Welcome Letter 2016

Welcome!
Tiller School is a K-5 grade public school of choice. We are tuition-free, North Carolina public charter school. Tiller School is located off Highway 70 East in lovely Beaufort, NC.
Tiller School has achieved excellence in so many ways over the past 20 years. We have reached maximum enrollment capacity, and have 30 teachers/staff members that work hard to continue the tradition of social and academic excellence. We are dedicated to continue with our successes for the future of our children and their education.
Our goals at Tiller School are to educate and develop life-long learners by helping students enjoy education, teaching students the way each individual learns. While we believe core subjects are important, we offer many special opportunities to develop well-rounded students. We focus on the arts, and offer both an after school program and after school enrichment clubs. Students are taught to use technology as a tool as it is integrated into the curriculum in technology classes and in our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program for fourth and fifth grade students. We use the Responsive Classroom approach, a research-based approach to teaching that focuses on the strong link between academic success and social-emotional learning. We believe that a high-quality education for every child is built on the foundation of a safe and joyful learning community. To learn more about our programs and performance, view our NC School Report Card at www.ncpublicschools.org/src.
Tiller School is dedicated to fostering curiosity, creativity and confidence through an innovative academic and social curriculum. Tiller School is a compassionate community that engages in rigorous academics, intellectual and aesthetic exploration and social responsibility. We at Tiller School would love the opportunity to share the Tiller experience with your child!
We encourage everyone to explore our website at www.tillerschool.org, and to learn more about our exciting school community!
Sincerely,

Virginia Jones
