Student Engagement and Achievement

Our Elementary Program is designed to nurture student’s curiosity and motivation in their learning while supporting the mastery learning approach in gaining content proficiency.  We strive to develop the whole child by engaging students in core subjects (reading, writing, mathematics, science and cultural studies) and special subjects (art, library, music, physical education, technology, and Languages Other than English.) 

Deep learning occurs through exploration, mistake-making, risk-taking, and the stamina to do it all over again and again under the guidance of a coach who encourages and intervenes just at the necessary moments. We're raising readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, linguists, artists, and athletes who have the grit and determination to make big mistakes in order to make big gains.

Did You Know?

Mastery learning means students have the time they need to master the skills necessary before moving on to the next unit. Students are only assessed when teachers know that mastery is attainable for that student. Ample opportunities are given for students to achieve above and beyond a mastery level.
