I tell students that they are seeing what's behind the curtain and revealing the ‘why’ behind what they are doing. Students have to show a deeper level of understanding in their work using the Math in Focus methods.

A Dynamic Education

Our program provides children with a firm foundation in essential skills and an introduction to abstract intellectual concepts. The Lower School curriculum emphasizes reading, writing and mathematics. Utilizing a cross-curricular approach, students incorporate these academic areas into other ones, such as social studies and science. From the beginning, solid work habits are stressed, providing a foundation for students to learn organizational strategies and to acquire note- and test-taking skills. Teachers differentiate instruction to provide the appropriate level of challenge and support for all students.

Specials beyond the Core

Beginning in junior kindergarten, classes in science, technology, modern and classical language, performing and visual arts, and physical education complement our students' sound academic foundation. Classroom and special subject teachers work together to integrate skills from multiple subjects. Students are given the opportunity to exhibit their knowledge and understanding at the end of the unit. Parents, faculty, staff and other students are invited to attend these exhibitions, including Spotlight on Authors, the Science, States and ArtStravaganza.
