The Elementary program is for children ages six to twelve. Each child moves at his own pace as he explores his 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 the child to be a learner who becomes independent of 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:
A body whose movements are mastered and controlled with fine coordination necessary for writing and manipulation of materials and the development of some athletic ability that may be carried into adulthood
An image of self that is positive and confident, an awareness of one's own feelings, with sensitivity to and consideration for the feelings of others and an understanding of one’s contribution to the common good
Mastery of the necessary tools or skills (reading, writing, mathematics, etc.) to equip the child for the lifelong pursuit of knowledge.
The Elementary day begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 3:15 p.m.
