Elementary Program

Ages 6-9 and 9-12

Our teaching practice emphasizes individual and small group demonstrations, challenges with problem solving and hands on learning, factual observations and assessments of skills which we use to continually inform and shape a rigorous and individual curriculum for each student.

-Our Elementary program is designed for children ages 6 to 12 and consists of Lower Elementary, grades one and two, and Upper Elementary, which includes grades three through five. By challenging students and following their passion, teachers create an environment that allows children to thrive academically as well as develop a sense of belonging in the classroom and school community.

– More advanced student’s increased abilities move from concrete use of materials that support academic concepts to developing abstract thinking and solid problem solving skills. Character development shares equal importance. Students are supported in developing a sense of justice, moral development, and a strong desire to be individuals within a community of learners.

-Assignments are clear and concise to meet the needs of the to maximize accountability for success. Goals are set for each individual student’s emotional, social, and intellectual growth
