Establishing a solid academic infrastructure at an early age is essential to intellectual development. Our program focuses on a providing a strong foundation in basic academic skills with an increasing emphasis on personal responsibility.
In addition to a focus on foundational skills, our schedule provides time for enrichment activities and collaborative work. Your child will learn to explore, ask questions, investigate and share knowledge. Varied teaching methodologies ensure that all learning styles are addressed. This results in a deeper, more genuine learning experience.
Our approach to learning is tailored to the needs and readiness of students in each grade level. For students in grades 1 and 2, the learning experience focuses on five domains of learning: social emotional, approaches to learning, language and literacy, cognitive, and physical. These domains encompass the core academic discipline, addressing each subject area from a developmental perspective, because each child progress at varying rates within each discipline. Our exemplary program for students in grades 3-5 challenges students to develop self-awareness as independent learners, assume personal responsibility for academic learning and social behavior, and balance self-interest with active membership in the larger community. With this in mind, the learning experience is organized according to three pillars: social/emotional, cognitive development, and approaches to learning.
