Elementary Curriculum

The elementary curriculum focuses on guiding young students as they gain confidence and agility in reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, and science. Students develop the foundational skills for critical thinking and listening, comprehension, research, and creative exploration.

The core curriculum integrates learning about visual and performing arts, technology and library use, music, physical education and health, and multiculturalism. All teaching and learning intentionally supports students as they develop skills in inquiry, information literacy, and self-expression. Experiential learning outside the classroom includes field trips and community involvement.
