Welcome to Scholaris, the micro-school dedicated to meeting the individual needs of each student in grades 1-8. Located in the heart of Dallas, our research-based instructional methods, combined with the dedication of our expertly-trained teachers has provided students with the opportunity to realize their true potential. At Scholaris, students learn the skills they need to experience academic success and develop intellectual curiosity.
The Scholaris faculty is composed of teachers who have received intensive training in our specialized multisensory instructional strategies in order to meet the needs of all learners. Regardless of education or employment, all new Scholaris faculty members start as an apprentice before assuming head teaching responsibilities. This practice enhances continuity throughout all classes, while developing our team-based approach to meeting each student's individual goals.
Scholaris considers parents and guardians to be essential partners in fostering confidence and independence while building effective work habits. Therefore, a significant effort is made to work with parents and guardians in helping them understand and deal with their children’s learning style and individual needs. There are quarterly parent/teacher conferences to review each student's progress both at home and at school.
Scholaris believes that each student is able to achieve his or her full potential and become integral members of society. Our faculty ensures the implementation of Thomas Jefferson's six objects of education written in 1818:
To give every citizen the information he needs for the transaction of his own business;
To enable him to calculate for himself, and to express and preserve his ideas, his contracts and accounts, in writing;
To improve, by reading, his morals and faculties;
To understand his duties to his neighbors and country, and to discharge with competence the functions confided to him by either;
To know his rights; to exercise with order and justice those he retains; to choose with discretion the fiduciary of those he delegates; and to notice their conduct with diligence, with candor, and judgement;
And, in general, to observe with intelligence and faithfulness, all the social relations under which he shall be placed.
We invite you to visit so that we can share with you what makes Scholaris such a unique experience and how we are able to truly make a difference in the lives of our students and their families.
