Developmentally appropriate activities are at the heart of our elementary program. A balanced language arts curriculum focuses on reading, writing, listening, speaking, accurate spelling and phonics. Integral to this program is the use of quality literature and daily opportunities for writing.
Mathematics provides for the development of basic computational skills, application and problem solving; hands-on science instruction sets the tone for inquiry and discovery; and social studies introduces concepts of neighborhood, community, region, state and country.
The elementary curriculum is further augmented through programs in art, music, which offers a 4th grade violin program, physical education and library research opportunities. Our school is equipped with a technology laboratory which grants students opportunities to integrate technology with the expectations of curriculum.
