No Excuses University fosters lifelong learning, student success


At Dehesa, we believe every student has the right to a high-quality education. By offering a rigorous curriculum in a fun and safe environment, the school hopes to foster a sense of exploration that inspires lifelong learners.

Each year, Dehesa School staff members sign a pledge, promising their commitment to student success and educational excellence. As a No Excuses University, Dehesa encourages the application of the Six Exceptional Systems, a philosophy that combines character education, the seven pillars of highly successful students, and college-readiness:

Culture of Universal Achievement: Each Dehesa teacher and school staff member has the power, skills, and opportunity to make a positive impact on a student’s life by supporting their journey to academic excellence.

Collaboration: Collaboration between educators is key to student success. Dehesa’s NEU Team and teachers meet formally and informally throughout the week to discuss short and long-term goals for students and the school.

Standards Alignment: California’s new Common Core State Standards provide the district with an objective framework to guide instruction and help identify content mastery requirements and expectations.

Assessment: The information gathered from formative and summative assessments is used to evaluate the effectiveness of a curriculum and implement better practices that will lead to greater student success.

Data Management: Classroom instruction and district goals are based on extensive research and data. Staff analyzes data to design a curriculum that equips students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in life. To accomplish this, data is made easily accessible, is openly shared, and deliberately arranged to create a strong network of support for each Dehesa student.

Interventions: Response to Intervention (RTI) Programs uses student data to determine the best course of action that yield desired results and help each child reach higher levels of proficiency.
