Advanced Elementary (4th-6th Grade)
In the Advanced Elementary, we take advantage of the maturing child’s desire to sort out values and principles. Through discussion, research, and essays, students explore their own opinions and beliefs.
They develop an appreciation for the ideas of others and respect for differing points of view. They bring their curriculum to life by immersing themselves in whatever they are studying, whether it be baking cupcakes to illustrate the layers of the Earth or creating a play to describe the parts of a cell.
In both elementary classrooms, we use individualized instruction to help students learn for themselves. We encourage them to go as far as they want in learning about a subject. Students also participate in group lessons and experience the satisfaction of cooperative work. Specialty classes in art, music, Spanish, and physical education are woven into the curriculum to create a well-balanced educational program.
