Elementary

 
Our elementary program serves small classrooms of 14-15 students in kindergarten through 4th strengths, inquiry, problems solving, and critical thinking across all subjects. Even our littlest students are working on answering, “Can you explain your thinking? How do you know?” grade. The elementary team values the importance of building off student. The elementary school day begins with a class morning meeting where community building takes center stage. Students then launch into their academic day, participating in reading and writing workshops, math investigations, and science and social studies explorations. Teachers use data gleaned from assessment and observation to monitor progress and plan for targeted instruction. In order to address their complex learning needs, children participate in small groups and 1:1 conferences with their teacher as much as possible. This results in a rich, flexible curriculum that is tailor-made to meet the needs of our students.
