The Elementary Years (Grades 1-6)
The Elementary age child is a part of a dynamic learning environment that fosters self-confidence and self-respect. The mixed-age grouping (6-9 year olds and 9-12 year olds) offers an opportunity for your child to learn the benefits and the techniques of working with others.
The rich curriculum includes the study of mathematics, geometry, literature and language, history, geography, and science (botany, zoology, physics, astronomy.) Students are involved in other activities such as Spanish, Music, Art and Physical Education. Community service, outdoor experiences, and field trips assist to broaden the students' perspectives.
Our aim is not merely to make the child understand, and still less to
force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination to enthuse him to
his innermost core.
