Curriculum & Instruction

Invictus offers a personalized learning period in which students are regrouped based on their academic needs and given guided support. Invictus also provides an advisory period, in which students work with a mentor on staff to set goals and grow their non-academic skills.

Culture & Safety

Before school starts each year, Invictus spends a full week training teachers to create a safe, positive classroom culture. This includes direct support in how to build relationships with students, communicate with parents, and respond to misbehaviors. Invictus works hard to celebrate students for making good choices through a system of school rewards, as well as during a community meeting every week, where students are lauded publicly for going above and beyond in their classes.

Programs & Activities

Invictus values communication with parents. The school sends a weekly report home with students so that parents are informed about their child’s progress and hosts multiple forums for parents to offer input and partner with school staff. Invictus also believes in helping students grow their non-academic skills and offers electives, where teachers teach students an activity of interest to them (e.g., basketball, yoga, chess, and more).
