Students at Caurus Academy Develop a Love for Learning

Caurus Academy (located in Anthem, Arizona) makes sure that their students start every day in a happy, nurturing environment.  Their students learn by creating, discovering, and exploring a curriculum that is often connected with their personal interests.  This method allows the children to develop a love for learning.

But in the summer 2016, Caurus began experiencing issues with their refrigeration and oven unit.  They decided it was time to upgrade.

“Sustenance plays a huge role in the overall success for children.  Especially during their developmental phase.  One of our core values is intellect, and without the proper nutrients our children would not be able to fully excel.” Said Dameon Blair, principal.

“At TEQlease Education Finance, the children are always our first priority.  We are pleased to be able to assist Caurus Academy with the purchase of their refrigeration and oven unit” said Mike Lockwood, President of TEQlease Education Finance.

TEQlease Team Visits Westlake Charter School

Westlake Charter School  kindly hosted TEQlease Equipment Finance Specialists and staff Erika Aguirre, Jamell Dorton, Dana Andrada and Mike Lockwood on March 20, 2017 just before the CCSA conference.

John Eick, Executive Director, and Steve Korvink, Chief Business Officer, gave the TEQlease team a tour of the new school construction that will combine all Westlake Charter School K-8 students in one location this Fall.

The building, grounds and the collaborative thought process that will result in an incomparable educational facility are most impressive.  The facility’s collaborative design process sought input from teachers, staff members and Westlake’s community, and will ultimately result in a truly exceptional campus.

Westlake Charter School currently operates from two separate campuses, consisting entirely of portable classroom buildings. The new site is nestled into the North Natomas community and shares an adjacent city park for additional outdoor exploration and educational opportunities.

In addition to modern learning spaces, Westlake Charter School will feature a gymnasium, cafeteria/multi-purpose space and abundant technology to support the school’s commitment to a technology-rich environment. The new school is scheduled for completion in August 2017.
