Setting a Strong Foundation
The academic curriculum for K-4 focuses on core academics for strong foundations in math, reading and writing. Religion and Spanish are core academic classes. Students participate in Art, music, P.E., computer and library class once per week. Dedicated teachers in grades K-4 emphasize foundational skills which are enhanced by hands-on science and social studies projects. Kindergarten classes have a part-time teaching assistant working alongside the lead teacher. Students enjoy field trips connected to what they’re learning in the classroom and develop an early love of literature and writing, and a joy of learning, critical thinking, and exploring.
