Mission Statement & Vision
The Hollywood Education & Literacy Project Miami is a non-profit, accredited private school and tutoring center whose mission is to empower the individual student to become a competent, independent learner with sound educational skills so that they can master their academics and succeed in life.
We do not label or believe that medication is the solution to poor academic performance. We do not endorse or participate in mental health screenings sponsored by pharmaceutical companies for our students. Nor do we accept kick-backs from the pharmaceutical industry that are called “incentives” for assisting to label a child. We do not endorse or participate in Common Core curriculum.
H.E.L.P. Miami utilizes the study methods and educational advices of L. Ron Hubbard. Our programs are designed to engage the individual and make him or her a participant to their education. Our study groups are small to ensure that the student gets proper attention.
We are not interested in instructing solely so our students can “pass tests.” We want our students to have a personal purpose relating to what they are learning and we want our students to be able to apply this knowledge in real life situations. We welcome our students to challenge texts, express their ideas and offer their own solutions to matters at hand.
Rising academic scores prove that a well managed classroom environment that gives ample attention to the student is effective. It is our hope that other schools will follow our example, thus reversing the current educational decline.
A large, self-contained campus for 150 students from Pre-K to 12th grade. School would offer a strong academic program that included art, photography, dance, music and technology. Vocational skills such as auto mechanics, carpentry, plumbing, gardening, cooking and child care would be available. Home Economics would be required for all high schoolers. Physical education would include tumbling, martial arts and sports.
We would develop and implement a full academic and life skills program for children with special needs.
A full curriculum with lesson plans, worksheets, exams would be developed for each grade level. Lessons would include the definitions of key words for the topics being taught, as well as suggested projects to involve the students. Lessons would be thorough, yet flexible enough that the teachers can inject their personal creativity into their classes.
After hours, the school would serve as a training facility for volunteers and adults as well. We could do in-house teacher training, home-schooling workshops for parents and we could act as a mentor to local private schools to help them increase their enrollment. Part of our services would include a comprehensive reading program for adults and English as a Second Language.
Our campus would be state of the art, inviting, and our staff and students would love to be there.
We need your support to make our vision a REALITY.
