Instruction is individualized for students by dividing them in three math levels by grade. All levels are advanced by one year, some moving faster and going deeper than others. The curriculum used is GoMath! in P-5 and for the most advanced 5th grade class. This program is designed to be a particularly good fit for advanced learners.
Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA) is used in P-5 grade for reading instruction. In addition, we cover novels, stories, poetry, myths, literary terms, dramas, speeches, sayings and phrases included in the Core Knowledge sequence.
Writing is an area of special focus for all grade levels. All teachers are trained in Step Up to Writing and deliver consistent instruction in all grades.
Science, History and Geography
These topics provide the ‘content backbone’ of the school, making each grade unique and special for the students. High interest activities like a Renaissance Fair, Day at the Castle, Pioneer Day, Poetry Cafe, Science Fair, and building-wide science investigations make for exciting and fun-filled learning!
Music and Art
Students learn Art history and appreciation. Our art room provides ample space for hands-on experiences in multiple media, including pottery wheels and ceramics. In Music students learn elements of music, musical history and traditions and to play various instruments.
Students take Spanish from 1st grade through 5th grade. At the 6th grade level they advance into high school level classes.
Students learn the fundamentals of technology. Our technology labs are equipped with Chromebooks that students can use to explore Learning.com’s thorough suite of lessons about software, hardware, and more.
