The JK program is guided by educational wisdom…
Children have a strong potential for development, learning through the “hundred languages” belonging to all human beings and growing in relations with others.
Students develop their academic, social, and emotional skills in a learning environment that is developmentally responsive to their strengths and needs.
A Mindset for Learning
Students build a foundation for a lifetime of growth through empathy, optimism, resilience, persistence, and flexibility.
Reading and Writing Workshop
Each child is a working author in our workshop-based model, developed by Lucy Calkins and Columbia Teachers College.
Experienced, Innovative Teachers
Like the Magic School Bus’s Ms. Frizzle, they encourage children to “take chances, make mistakes, get messy!”
Our School Philosophy
“Our mission is to pursue goodness as well as knowledge and to honor the unique value of each of our members as a child of God in a caring community.”
And designed to realize the potential of each child.
