Integrated Thematic Instruction


Integrated Thematic Instruction (ITI) is a comprehensive school model designed by Susan Kovalik in 1982 to increase student performance and teacher satisfaction. The primary purpose of the model is to teach children in a way where they will gain authentic understanding of core content areas and develop responsible citizenship. Over the past 25 years, ITI has been implemented in thousands of schools across America, Europe and Asia.

Parent Participation


Active parent participation is the cornerstone of our school. The goals of parent participation at LdV include the academic success of all children and the empowerment of parents in the educational process.
