AMIkids Caddo is located in Shreveport, LA. In partnership with the Caddo Parish Public Schools, it serves an alternative school of choice for students in grades 6-8. The school began operation in 2016 is based on the AMIkids Personal Growth Model (APGM) to allow choice, flexibility, and accountability for students who otherwise might not succeed in the traditional school setting. The program is founded on the believe that all children have the potential to change and succeed in life, especially when given the proper direction and support. The APGM combines education, mental health treatment and behavior modification to develop youth into self-motivated, self-directed responsible citizens.
In our model, the program employs highly qualified, effective teachers for the provision of academic services using the instructional strategies adopted by the AMIkids Personal Growth Model© (APGM©). The APGM© includes the provision of academic instruction in the core content areas of English/Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Science. We utilize acceleration strategies such as differentiated instruction, individualized instruction, experiential education, service learning, and prescriptive instructional software. The focus on core content instruction as well as career/vocational preparation supports student progression towards high school graduation and beyond.
Behavioral support is provided with a full-time Behavioral Interventionist who will implement behavioral strategies and shaping steps to improve student conduct both in and out of the school environment. Advising/Counseling is also provided daily as part of the instructional program to address any additional anti-social behaviors which impact a student’s ability to perform and succeed in school and at home.
AMIkids Caddo is focused on the establishment of strong collaboration with the local school district, local schools, families and the community in an effort to provide intense behavior modification services as well as rigorous academic programming to support the needs of the youth served.
Our goal is to provide excellent services to students who are experiencing, or have experienced significant difficulty performing in the traditional education system. AMIkids Caddo is committed to developing self-disciplined students who achieve high academic standards in a safe and caring learning environment.
With your support, we can change the lives of our community's kids and impact generations to come.
