NURTURING THE WHOLE CHILD
We share Socrates' belief in the power of inquisitive learning by kindling in children a passion for self-discovery that will persist throughout their lives. To ignite this enthusiasm, we encourage children to journey forward on a personal path where inquiry, creativity, and reflection guide their way.
SOCIAL | EMOTIONAL
By nature, young children as budding learners are inquisitive and creative. They are fascinated with every discovery they make. The elementary curriculum taught through our Discovery Program aims at harnessing the playful energy deep within every child, transforming it into a love for knowledge, inquiry and learning. The curriculum is based on engaging activities developed to build upon children's interests and ignite their curiosity. Our blended model combines digital curriculum with textbook-based learning. The curriculum is developed to support the development of the whole child and aligns with our Socratic philosophy, reinforcing fundamental skills and concepts in a fun, hands-on and technological environment. Lessons are developed to explore the meaning behind content learned and align with practical application of concepts to everyday life.
Students are placed in classes that match their social and academic needs. Student evaluation and placement is considered on an ongoing basis during the academic year. This practice is key to ensuring that students are moving forward and challenged and/or provided the necessary enrichment and support in areas of challenge. This may or may not conform with their traditional grade-level. Students have a custom schedule that best suit their social and academic needs regardless of grade level.
