And, a fluent academic foundation produces learners who demonstrate cognitive fitness. This is the ability to learn and perform as an expert in any academic setting on any type of task. Students who are cognitively fit tend to be agile, flexible, focused, perseverant, confident, determined, and able to think critically. Ultimately, it is these students who will be successful in elementary or private schools.
