Introduction to Elementary Program (Grades K – 5)
Our elementary program combines core content areas such as literacy, math, science, and social studies, with co-curricular subjects like music, art, library, and physical education to provide our students with a well-balanced, developmentally appropriate set of experiences that promote creative thinking, support curiosity about learning, and develop global awareness.
Our instructional strategies are based on the best practices found around the world and encourage inquiry and critical thinking. Through careful and ongoing assessment of a child’s development, teachers provide an instructional program that equips children with the skills, concepts, and tools needed for continued learning. A low teacher-to-student ratio helps to support learning.
Through the use of the Responsive Classroom approach, teachers endeavor to foster the social skills of cooperation, assertion, responsibility, empathy, and self-control in all students.
