Elementary School

The Elementary School educates children ages six through eleven. The school provides a safe, welcoming environment that fosters a love of learning through a student focused, inquiry based approach to teaching and learning.

The philosophy of instruction addresses the whole child. Learning focuses on connecting the various disciplines: language, mathematics, science, social studies, personal and social education, physical education, creative arts- including music, drama and visual arts.

To make learning relevant, engaging, meaningful, and challenging, children are encouraged to learn by inquiring, questioning, exploring and doing. Different approaches are used to reach the widest range of individuals. The teacher acts as a guide/facilitator to help students discover concepts, principles and generalizations.

The ultimate goal of education at the Elementary School is to produce internationally minded individuals who are compassionate, caring, responsible, and knowledgeable. The aim is to develop risk-takers (courageous), children with life-long learning skills like critical thinking and problem solving and character traits such as integrity, commitment and good citizenship. Self-awareness is promoted through questioning, exploring, reflecting and self-assessment.

Open communication and cooperation among educators, parents and students are essential elements. As partners, both parents and educators endeavor to help children reach their true potential and to aim for personal excellence.
