At the Institute for Excellence in Education, we focus on supporting students by increasing the capacity of those who serve them, teachers and school leaders!

Positively Impacting Schools
Meet Caniff Liberty Academy and Oakland International Academy
OIA opened in 1999 and currently serves over 800 K-12 students. CLA is home to almost 500 students in grades K-8. IEE has partnered with OIA and CLA since the fall of 2016 and has provided training and coaching around FIM Math, FIM ELA, differentiation, student engagement, and more. Our partnership with these schools is strong and the focus remains on empowering OIA and CLA teachers to help their students meet their full potentials.
My students and I both love FIM ELA. The consistency of the program allows students to feel successful and comfortable with trying difficult tasks. It quite literally forces them to try even if they don’t know if it’s right. It also gives me a chance to praise students who take risks, which is something we forget to do as teachers. I also love that my ELs (English learners) can feel successful with FIM ELA because of its repetitive nature. I have some EL’s who score higher than native speakers! Any time my EL students can feel good about their work in English is a win, and FIM ELA really gives them that space!
