• Teaching and Learning

    At the Mario Umana Academy, we take great pride in holding all students to a high level of academic expectations.  As a school, we have fully adopted the Common Core Curriculum, and each teacher works hard to analyze data that helps provide targeted instruction for each class.  

    Our Instructional Focus for 2015-16:
    The Umana will use graphic organizers as a tool to analyze and synthesize information from multiple sources (e.g. text, video, charts, and images), in order for students to respond to questions using source based evidence and reasoning.

    In order for teachers to have the greatest insight to the needs of their students, the Umana uses several monitoring assessments throughout the year, including, but not limited to: DIBELS/IDEL, Fountas and Pinnell, TRC, and ANet.  For the dates of these assessments and others, please refer to our school calendar
