Elementary Curriculum

The elementary school curriculum focuses on guiding young students as they gain confidence and agility in reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, and science.

A Foundation for Lifelong Learning
Dedicated teachers know their students—and know them well—to motivate and inspire. Learning becomes a process that incorporates natural curiosity and playfulness. The focus is on exploring questions, not just reciting answers. Opportunities to develop Life Skills are woven into all lessons and activities throughout, guiding social emotional development and laying a solid foundation for authentic lifelong learning.

A Vibrant World to Explore
Guided by expert, dedicated teachers, students learn to explore the world around them through social studies, reading, writing, mathematics, science, and the arts. The core curriculum also integrate 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.


An emphasis on Life Skills is woven into all elementary students' days and later reinforced with the Habits of Mind and Heart, which lay a solid foundation for authentic lifelong learning.
