The Elementary program is for children ages six to 12 years old.
Each child moves at their own pace as they explore their place in the world through language and communication, geography, science, history, mathematics and geometry, the natural environment and conflict resolution. The Elementary adult guide seeks to enable each student to be a learner who becomes independent from the adult and embarks on a lifelong quest for knowledge and understanding of the world.
The objectives of the Elementary program fall into three categories:
Physical: A body whose movements are mastered and controlled with fine coordination necessary for writing and the manipulation of materials along with the development of some athletic ability that may be carried into adulthood.
Emotional: A self-image that is positive and confident, aware of one’s own feelings and the feelings of others, while understanding personal contribution to the common good.
Intellectual: Mastery of the necessary tools or skills (reading, writing, mathematics, etc.) to equip the child for lifelong pursuit of knowledge and understanding.
Elementary day begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 3:15 p.m.
