Prep: Grade 1

Within their self-contained classrooms, first graders develop their fundamental skills and confidence in language arts, mathematics, and social studies. Through phonics instruction and children’s literature our program nurtures a love of reading, literature, and poetry. Deliberate modeling and instruction help students become fluent writers, careful listeners, and effective speakers. Children learn and practice math skills, concepts, and procedures through a variety of instructional strategies and activities. Small classes give teachers the flexibility to adjust the pace and instruction to meet individual needs.

Attending classes taught by subject specialists for art, music, science, computer, French, and physical education helps build students self-control, confidence, and independence.
