Mountain Island Charter School's K-5 program provides a student-centered, research-based curriculum that is aligned with the North Carolina Course of Study. Students are taught Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. A daily specials rotation includes Art, Music, Physical Education, Media, Technology, Science Lab, and Band (Grade 5). Instructional strategies are rigorous, provide hands on learning, and teach students to problem solve and communicate their learning.

Numerous opportunities are available for students to develop leadership skills, service, and character. The Choose Love Curriculum provides a foundation for our character education program. Our Principal’s Book of the Month supports both our Character Education Program and our literacy program. Accelerated Reader is used as a motivational tool to encourage students to become friends with books.  Special events throughout the year include the Raptor Run, Grandfriends Day, Book Character Parade, and Salute to Veterans.  The After-School Enrichment Program offers numerous fee-based activities including Running Raptors, Mad Science, Golf Squad, Bricks for Kids, and Lego Robotics.

Literacy At Home: Digital Children's Reading Initiative
In order to provide continuing support for North Carolina’s youngest readers, The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction Office of Early Learning has developed and released “Literacy at Home.” This digital resource provides literacy activities at each grade level, pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. Families and communities may access this resource for activities that specifically target the literacy skills of phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and oral language. When children grow in each of these foundational areas they are well on their way to becoming proficient readers. Click HERE for one page parent flyer.
Click HERE to be linked to the website that will connect families to all the literacy resources for grades pre-k through 5th. A part of this initiative if any family is in need of assistance with printing of materials, please let us know. Any questions, email Mrs. DeBeauvernet at [email protected].

Dress Code

The school implements a restrictive coordinate dress code to promote a focused and safe learning environment.  A K-12 progressive approach allows for increased choice when developmentally appropriate.  Success depends upon a cooperative partnership between the home and school.
