What We Teach

Young 5s
What We Teach

Young 5 kindergarten is designed for a young learner who may benefit from a half-day program. Children adjust to the social and academic demands of school in a fun, hands-on environment. Young 5 provides ‘the gift of time’ so younger learners can succeed in Kindergarten. Teachers help them develop social, motor, and academic skills necessary to prosper in full-day kindergarten.

Kindergarten - 2nd Grade
What We Teach

In Kindergarten through second grade, young students develop their baseline academic skill-sets, with an emphasis on English language arts and mathematics, preparing them for success when faced with the increasingly rigorous demands of higher grade-levels.

3rd - 5th Grade
What We Teach

In third through fifth grade, students augment their academic skill-sets, continuing an emphasis on English language arts and mathematics, and expanding into additional subjects. This sets students up for success when faced with the increasingly rigorous demands of higher grade-levels.

6th - 8th Grade
What We Teach

In sixth through eighth grade, students augment their academic skill-sets, continuing an emphasis on English language arts and mathematics, and further building upon additional subjects. This sets students up for success when faced with the increasingly rigorous demands of high school.

Spotlight: Ava H.

     In Kindergarten, I didn't know any English. So the Spanish half of the day was fine, but the English half was really scary. 
     Now I'm in second grade, and I even think in both languages. If I'm in English class and you point at that thing, I think of it as a "chair" first, and not a silla."

Above and Beyond

Our schools go the extra mile to ensure each student develops the knowledge, skills, and character to succeedthrough:
A heart in a hand

Moral Focus

We believe kindness and strong hearts and minds can impact the world in significant ways. Virtues like respect, compassion, and perseverance are essential for kids to succeed and an essential part of what we teach. We make moral focus lessons part of every school day.

Graduation Cap

College Prep

Every student should have the opportunity to attend college and excel there. From day one, we instill college-preparedness skills in the ways that we train students to think, communicate, and problem-solve. Students practice their critical-thinking skills in real-world contexts.
