OUR ELEMENTARY PROGRAM
EDUCATION AND ENRICHMENT
As we continue to provide our families and students with every advantage, we have expanded our high quality educational programs to Elementary School. We designed innovative classrooms for Kindergarten through 2nd Grade students, which opened in August 2019. The school's commitment to quality education for early grades stems from its belief that a solid early education is vital to a student's learning foundation and will insure that students leave the school with the life skills they need to succeed as they advance through the upper grades.
In addition to our academic curriculum which includes hands-on learning centers we focus on personal and social responsibility. Our core values include responsibility, respect, honesty and kindness.

School Holidays and Summer Camp
Off-site field trips to waterparks, movies, museums, zoo, skating, etc.
The Elementary Grade rooms were designed and renovated (summer 2019) specifically to enhance the learning experience for the students. We utilize our outdoor areas as learning centers where children plant gardens, grow vegetables, and watch caterpillars turn into butterflies. We have a 5,000 square foot gymnasium (i.e. the white barn), which provides inside activities for our summer campers. We have two full-sized school buses and a van to transport your children in for educational field trips.
Our philosophy is that every child's abilities are different during these early years and we use a flexible grouping of students which changes throughout the day depending on what is being learned and the needs of the students. The core courses of knowledge are emphasized in the early grades, particularly math and reading to ensure success throughout the student's time in school.
Field trips are an important element in connecting classroom learning to real-world experiences. Students also learn outside in the school garden where students learn about biology and life cycles, as well as other interdisciplinary lessons in math, art, history, culture, and language.
