Elementary Philosophy

 
Each school shares the responsibility with the home to promote personal growth, societal responsibility and citizenship. The family assumes the initial responsibility for helping the child develop physically, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and ethically. The school provides additional opportunities to promote the individual’s growth in these five critical areas. Children enter school at various levels of development. The school recognizes these levels of maturation and addresses each situation as it occurs.

Elementary Program

The goal of the elementary program is to equip each child to be an informed, caring and effective citizen. This is accomplished at the primary level by teaching children to read, to express their thoughts through speaking and writing, to work with numbers and mathematical operations, to investigate, to inquire and to solve problems.

All elementary students are required to take Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Library Services, Health, Vocal Music and Art. Beginning in fourth grade students may also elect to study an instrument from the string, wind, brass, or percussion family.
