It’s September 24, and today would’ve been puppeteer Jim Henson’s 85th birthday. He was the creator of the Muppets and provided the voices for many of them, including Kermit the Frog, Ernie, Rowlf and Guy Smiley. Some of them appeared on Sesame Street, a show that is as educational as it is entertaining for pre-schoolers and elementary school students. We know that children learn in different ways and at different times, and after they have received a good foundation in pre-school and elementary school, we would be happy to educate them in grades 6-12. Our middle school courses cover core subject areas like English, math, science and social studies, and electives are available as well. Our high school courses cover those same core subject areas in more detail and include a wider variety of electives including technical, fine arts and world language courses. You may enroll in an accredited middle school program or accredited high school program or simply enroll in a course or two to enrich an existing homeschool program. Either way, you’ll have plenty of sunny days ahead after enrolling with American School, and all of us would be happy to serve you.
