Reading is taught through a balanced literacy program consisting of explicit instruction of strategies and skills, including phonemic instruction and whole language, which emphasizes comprehension and critical thinking. Mathematics is taught through hands-on activities using manipulatives, construction, games and computers, with pencil and paper reinforcement to build basic mathematical concepts, problem solving, applications, and computation.
Students are taught through direct instruction and reinforcement of phonics, introduced in pre-kindergarten, through second grade. They are instructed in vocabulary and word study which emphasizes roots, prefixes, and suffixes. Guided Reading is used to instruct and emphasize important reading strategies.
In our Lower School, we strive to help children develop self-esteem and lifelong learning skills in a safe, nurturing and diverse community. Each student’s personal success is ensured through a stimulating and personalized college-preparatory curriculum focusing on the growth of the mind as a whole.
