An Unmatched Elementary School Experience
The scholars of Bentley Academy Charter School will gain an unmatched elementary school experience through the use of teacher chosen curricula based on student needs, data to drive differentiated instruction, intentional experiences that enhance and support students’ vision of themselves as collegiate scholars, and a focus on self-improvement for the whole school community that will prepare them for the rigors of middle school, high school, college, and beyond.
BACS students will achieve at the same high levels regardless of socio-economicstatus, race, or other element of privilege or challenge. By applying our key design elements and with vigorous reinforcement of our core values, BACS will eliminate the achievement gap and graduate students with the academic skills and personal mindset to succeed in middle and high school so that a wide range of post-secondary options are available to them.
Bentley Academy Charter School will become a flagship Salem Public School with students who understand the value of education and engaged in exciting and challenging work, teachers who are immersed in a culture of high expectations and continuous professional improvement, and a community that takes pride in their school and shares in the responsibility to maintain high standards. We believe the current scholars of BACS will thrive throughout their educational careers and will become role models for future scholars of BACS as important contributing members of their community.
