While Woodland Hills Private School is open to all students and not exclusively for gifted, talented and high achieving students, many families choose WHPS for the advanced and enriched academic program. Over the past few years, with the adoption of cutting-edge curriculum and enhanced teacher training, we have found new ways to help our high-achieving students reach new heights.

To that end, we were pleased this week to receive our students’ ERB results from the spring. This assessment compares our students to peers in private and independent schools across the country, and unlike the test children take in California public schools, the ERB uses a constructed response section to look at students’ thinking, not just multiple choice questions. Thus, it assesses critical thinking at a much deeper level.

Here are the results from this year’s graduating class:

LOGICAL THINKING: QUANTITATIVE REASONING, MATHEMATICS

  • 60% of our students scored in the 8thstanine, which means they were in the top 11% of students who tested nationally .
  • 87% of our students scored in the 7th stanine, which means they were in the top 23% of students who tested nationally .

LITERACY: READING, WRITING, VERBAL REASONING

  • 53% of our students scored in the 8th stanine, which means they were in the top 11% of students who tested nationally .
  • 73% of our students scored in the 7th stanine. which means they were in the top 23% of students who tested nationally.

Parents in grades 3-5 will be receiving their child’s individual ERB score report via email this week. Please watch for this email and don’t hesitate to contact the school office if you have any questions.

Primary Care Doctor Shortage – How Does the Health Care Law Address

How to Beat the Doctor Shortage

En español l For years, Marcia Andrews visited the same internist in Washington, D.C. Then she turned 65, got her Medicare card and had to find a new doctor: Her internist was not accepting Medicare patients. Primary care doctors are in such demand now that they can choose not to accept Medicare, whose reimbursements to physicians are lower than private insurance rates.

More and more people, especially Medicare patients, are having trouble finding a doctor.

The doctor shortage is worse than most people think, says Steven Berk, M.D. dean of the School of Medicine at Texas Tech University. The population is getting older, so there’s a greater need for primary care physicians. At the same time, physicians are getting older, too, and they’re retiring earlier, Berk says. And graying doctors — nearly half the nation’s 830,000 physicians are over age 50 — are seeing fewer patients than they did four years ago, a 2012 Physicians Foundation survey reported.

Soon, this fraying primary care network will face another huge challenge: Under the Affordable Care Act. millions of formerly uninsured men and women will have access to health care.

We need to absorb these 30 million people, and that’s going to be a strain, says Russell Phillips, M.D. director of Harvard Medical School’s new Center for Primary Care.

A fundamental change

The approach most favored by experts at Harvard and elsewhere is to reshape traditional primary care: from a stream of patients waiting to see one harried doctor to a more efficient team practice in which patients with routine problems are seen by nurse-practitioners and physician assistants — trained specialists with master’s degrees. The team frees the doctor to spend more time with patients with more serious complaints.This change could be as fundamental as the one that took place when most family doctors stopped making Marcus Welby-like house calls.

The Affordable Care Act encourages such a sea change, with provisions that aim to shore up and expand the country’s ailing primary care system while still reducing costs.

The ACA authorizes money to increase the primary care workforce by training more doctors, nurses, nurse-practitioners and physician assistants. It includes more graduate medical education training positions, with priorities for primary care and general surgery, and more money for scholarships and loans for all health professionals. The law expands the number of patients seen at community health centers in areas with too few doctors and increases the number of staffers who work in the centers. It also expands nurse-managed clinics at nursing schools where nurses in training see patients who live in the area.

Another key provision: a 10 percent bonus, through 2015, to primary care doctors who offer services to Medicare patients.

But in these times of shrinking federal budgets, it’s unclear how much ACA primary care money will be available as Congress juggles competing priorities. Congress, for example, already has chopped about $6.25 billion from the ACA’s new $15 billion Prevention and Public Health Fund, which pays for programs to reduce obesity, stop smoking and otherwise promote good health. In addition, federal support for training all types of physicians, including primary care doctors, is targeted for cuts by President Obama and Congress, Republicans and Democrats, says Christiane Mitchell, director of federal affairs for the Association of American Medical Colleges, who calls the proposed cuts catastrophic.

A recent study by the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council reports that, when compared with citizens of 16 other high-income democracies, including those of Western Europe, Japan and Canada, Americans not only die younger but have poorer overall health. The researchers traced U.S. health disadvantages to a number of causes, including the fact that Americans have more limited access to primary care.

Where have all the doctors gone?

Today, the United States is short about 16,000 primary care doctors — the very doctors (family practitioners, internists and pediatricians) who offer the treatments and preventive screenings that save lives and head off expensive emergency room visits and hospitalizations.

Why the shortage? It starts with huge medical school debts and ends with a doctor who is often overworked and underpaid. While students may enter medical school wanting to practice primary care medicine, they graduate saddled with heavy debt — $250,000 is not unusual — which prompts them to switch to a more lucrative specialty. The starting salary for a primary care physician is $150,000 to $170,000; a radiologist or gastroenterologist can make two to three times that.

Only one in five graduating internal medicine residents plans to go into primary care medicine, the Journal of the American Medical Association reports.

Looking for a Doctor?

The best place to start is your state medical association. Many provide doctor directories that often include new doctors just setting up practice.

If you’re a Medicare beneficiary, go to medicare.gov . Under Forms, Help and Resources on the home page, select Find doctors, hospitals and facilities. Type in your ZIP code and you’ll get a drop-down menu of medical specialties, including primary care. The tool provides contact information for doctors according to the criteria you enter — geographic location, specialty, etc. Call the office to check whether the doctor is still taking new patients.

Clay Buchanan, a former lawyer, is one of those graduating in May. At 48, the Little Rock, Ark. resident is older than most medical students. He shadowed a family doctor as part of his training — and was hooked. By noon the first day, I loved it, Buchanan says.

New York University and several other colleges are planning to experiment with a three-year program.

Health clinics offer primary care

Community health centers offer another form of primary care. Nationwide, the centers serve 20 million patients a year using a team approach, and are open to all on a sliding fee scale. Under the ACA, they are expected to double their capacity to 40 million patients by 2015. To entice doctors to work at these centers, the National Health Service Corps repays up to $120,000 in loans for each doctor in return for four years’ service.

Technology, including telemedicine — which could reduce patient trips to the doctor’s office — also should help expand health care.

Another way to increase health services is to give physician extenders — nurses and other medical professionals — more autonomy. Patricia Grady, director of the National Institute of Nursing Research at the National Institutes of Health, supports increasing the role of trained nurses, allowing them to set up independent practices where they could do physical exams and advise patients on exercise and diet.

But that position has met with some resistance. The American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Medical Association (AMA) favor training more physicians and nurses but want to keep nurses in teams led by doctors.

Nurses and foreign doctors

Permitting more foreign doctors to practice here also would increase the pool of primary care providers. Last fall, President Obama signed a three-year extension of a visa waiver program that allows states to place 30 foreign medical school graduates a year in medically underserved areas for three years. Most remain in the communities after they satisfy their commitment. Still, the shortage is so acute, even the AMA is lobbying Congress to increase to 50 the number of foreign-educated doctors each state is allowed.

In the meantime, more Americans are anxiously searching for a primary care doctor — or waiting months to see one. Marcia Andrews, whose Washington doctor refused to take Medicare, finally found a new doctor who does. The search took her 18 months.

Marsha Mercer is a freelance journalist who lives in the Washington, D.C. area.

About us

Welcome to Emerald Schools

raising role models

Emerald High School was established in 2005 as a progression from the highly academically successful Emerald Nursery and Primary School in Lagos, which was established in 1995. The establishment of Emerald High School was in response to the yearnings of parents in the primary school and the need to bridge the gap in providing high quality Secondary School Education in the country. We are aware of the problems of today’s child, which include a hostile society that has not much to offer by way of values/morals and cramped learning environment, which do not help the child to attain his/her full potentials. With a view to making the difference, we at Emerald took cognizance of the gaps in the education sector in deciding what facilities and personnel to emplace, right from the inception of the school.

The permanent site, which became operational from September 2007 gives us even a better opportunity to explore all possibilities in child development. It is located in a 34 acres farmland in the serene valley of the sleepy Ogunrun-Ori Village in Ogun State, a mere 25 minutes leisurely drive from the former Toll Gate at the Lagos end of the Lagos-Ibadan Express Road. It is easily accessible from every part of the country by road or by air through Ibadan or Lagos axis. It is indeed an ideal learning environment because of its calm and beautiful scenery and insulation from city noise.

The Board of Governors, which is made up of men and women who have distinguished themselves in their chosen professions, which include Accounting, Banking, Human Resources Management, Education and Public Service, is very confident of the quality of education it has fashioned out. No wonder then that many of the members have/had their children in the school.

The school believes in building a solid foundation for the child, and as such goes to great length in emplacing holistic education programmes that incorporates best practices.We are always conscious of our vision of becoming a widely acclaimed school both locally and internationally and as such, we strive to turn out students with passion for excellence and who have been adequately prepared for tertiary education and life. We have put in place modern structures, quality manpower, condusive environment and adequate support services that a good school needs to run smoothly. Furthermore we have emplaced good security measures, students’ performance enhancing programmes, co-curricular activities, foreign Students exchange programmes coupled with regular visits to places of educational and social interest. We operate a robust information technology platform where students and teachers interact through their laptops and wide range network to complement classroom delivery.

We handle with care the health and comfort of our students. The hostels are run by competent personnel and that are constantly being trained to cope with day to day challenges of a modern day hostel. The clinic is stocked with good quality drugs under the supervision of qualified matrons and other experienced medical staff. We have a working agreement with a nearby high standard hospital where health cases are referred and treated when the need arises.

Our curriculum is a blend of British and Nigerian curriculum and the students write the following examinations: IGCSE, Checkpoint, NECO (Junior School) BECE and WASSCE. We also tutor students for TOEFL and SAT.

The results have been impressive over the years and to sustain this, our teachers are regularly trained both locally and abroad. All students have an insurance cover provided by a prominent insurance service provider. The insurance policy covers the students to the extent that in the unlikely event of the loss of the breadwinner (who is named in the policy) while in the school, they are able to continue their education.

The parents play a very important role in determining some of the policies of the school on the platform of the Parents Management Forum(PMF). The PMF of the school is headed by officers of high reputation and commitment who have been elected from the Parents. The parents on this platform partner with the school on various fronts in the education of the children.

Your choice of Emerald High School is a good decision and it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Emerald High School, where together, we shall raise role models.
