A full day program for students ages 6-8.
Our elementary classrooms include two parallel multi-age groups at each level that allow for peer to peer learning, mixed age groups, and a focus on teaching the student at his or her own level versus a set of expectations for a particular 'grade' that might be too high or too low. Every student has an individual profile of learning needs. With our model a student who struggles with reading, but may excel in math will be placed in the most appropriate small group. The ceiling is taken away as children are looked at individually with an opportunity to access learning appropriate to their level, regardless of how quickly they progress.
Reading Buddies and More
Upper School students can often be seen in classrooms of younger students as "reading buddies". Teachers buddy up older students to partner read with their younger friends or to do special projects with them. Throughout the year learning across the levels occurs as young students travel up to see older student showcase their learning, or through our large, twice-monthly gatherings for All School Sharing.
