The elementary curriculum is made up of a foundation program for grades 1 - 3, and an intermediate program for grades 4 and 5. A systematic program is used for reading instruction, balancing phonics and authentic literature with explicit skills instruction. Decoding and encoding skills, comprehension strategies, and a broad range of writing and language skills are thoroughly taught.
The elementary years provide a strong foundation for future academic and social growth. Individualization is carried out through flexible grouping based on needs observed during teaching. A multi-sensory approach is used whenever possible to accommodate all types of learners. Children at all levels are actively involved in thinking skills, problem-solving strategies, and real life applications enabling them to develop a thorough understanding of mathematics.
