COVID-19 Response & 2020–21 School Year Plan

AHB is ready to meet the challenges of the unique year ahead, and limited class space is still available. To learn more request a virtual tour.

The AHB Model

AHB has a progressive educational model, where social-emotional learning is prioritized right alongside high academic standards. Our small K-8 school has an already-established model that includes a low student-to-teacher ratio and condensed schedule. We are accustomed to getting a lot done in a short amount of time, and we know how to effectively partner with parents to support academic growth both in the classroom and at home. These aspects mean that our school has some unique advantages as we face the challenging and unprecedented year ahead.

Expectations for the Year Ahead

AHB has committed to operate with a full distance learning model at least through the entirety of First Semester. Until we can open strong, AHB is committed to providing a distance learning experience for students that prioritizes academic engagement, community connection, personal well-being, and a continued love of learning!

  • Small class sizes (10–12 students per teacher) mean personalized attention for each child through small group or individual conferences.
  • Teachers continue to create and deliver the quality content that AHB is known for and to provide children with authentic, hands-on, collaborative learning opportunities.
  • Students connect with one another and their teacher while learning through daily synchronized (live) and asynchronized (posted) instruction.
  • Families find programmatic flexibility and community support to work through this challenging time together.

When and how will our campus open?
AHB will make decisions on a quarter-by-quarter basis regarding when we deem it safe to open our campus, based on the progression of the health crisis in our city and the COVID-19 virus in general. The opinions of stakeholders, including families and teachers, are also carefully factored into these decisions.
