Essay Writing

All Kids Can Learn School believes that writing, as a language art is a vital form of expression and communication that will be required extensively as students attend high school and college. Writing practice is similar to the mastery of a musical instrument. Without daily practice and emphasis of learned techniques, one will not become adept in performance. 

All Kids Can Learn School has a set of goals that we will help your child to reach: To become a confident, thoughtful reader, and expressive and versatile writer; to have various writing experiences through the composition of responses; to daily journal writing; and to review and reinforce spelling, vocabulary, grammar in order to support growth as a reader and writer.

Our mission is for students to be able to demonstrate confidence through their writing, so they may compose clear, concise, stylistic pieces of writing, which illuminate purpose, and intelligence. We will help your child become proficient in all their writing endeavors. Our most important goal is for our students to be proud of what they write!

To extend the learning process and ensure children reach their full learning potential though the utilization of the out-of school hours. All Kids Can Learn has been offering an afterschool academic enrichment program in a distraction free learning environment since 2001.  The children not only get a chance to clarify and crystallize what they are learning at school: they set to work on extra reading, advanced math, newspaper article discussion, historical events research, and various creative projects which go beyond their regular school curriculum. This stimulates their interest in learning and broadens their knowledge and vision.

When children enjoy learning, they show the largest improvement in their grades. At our program we strive to instill an attitude of enthusiasm and curious inquiry.  They understand their efforts and hard work will pay off as they meet their goals.
