Who Is Rise?
A typical day at Rise is filled with laughter, learning and love. Our teachers strive to establish a strong community of learners by developing reciprocal
relationships with children and their families. At Rise we work together as a cohesive group of life long learners. All teaching and therapeutic practices are grounded in research and based on developmentally appropriate practice – BEST practice. At Rise, teachers’ moment-by-moment actions and interactions with children are what set us a part from everyone else! Curriculum is very important, but what the teacher does is paramount! Not only are the teachers dedicated to their students but they also have a firm foundation in early childhood and a Masters in Special Education. Each classroom environment, activity, and learning experience is tailored to meet students’ individual needs – both our traditional learners and our children with developmental disabilities. The child to teacher ratio is incomparable – with approximately one adult for every three children. Rise is a high quality inclusive preschool that strives on excellence. The Rise School of Austin promotes diversity, individuality, perseverance, acceptance, responsibility and respect. We are more than just a school – we provide the foundation for an inclusive community that celebrates diversity and creates positive change for a better tomorrow.
