Kindergarten - 2nd Grade

Kindergarten through 2nd grade is a time of rapid growth. Children strengthen basic skills and progress to higher-level thinking in literacy, math, science and social studies. As they become more aware of the world around them, they build empathy, compassion and understanding for others. They read to learn and understand the world, and write to express ideas and opinions. Preparing for algebra and beyond, they learn to apply more complex math skills.

Becoming a reader and writer is fundamental to success in life. Our youngest students learn how to read through a systematic phonics approach, which means we explicitly teach students the skills they need to decode text, while building comprehension, grammar, and writing skills through daily practice. Students make connections to texts and apply a variety of comprehension skills to what they’ve read. Our teachers use tools in line with state standards and ELA best practices to support instruction.

In kindergarten through second grade, our students develop a deep understanding of addition, subtraction, and place value concepts. Our curriculum supports students in developing number sense by introducing concepts with real life contexts and visual models. These foundational skills are the basis for greater geometry awareness and prepare students for more complex problem-solving in the years to come.

Children will learn to use their senses to observe and make sense of the world around them. They will explore a variety of topics, while they will also develop key practices such as communication, collaboration, and problem-solving that will serve them throughout their educational lives.

We’re committed to developing students who grow up to become thoughtful and compassionate citizens. Many concepts that will shape their awareness and empathy are introduced during these early years. Through inquiry, your child will explore connections between their own world, school, community and the larger world by examining the themes of geography, economics, and human systems.

  • Lay out their clothes the night before.
  • Set an alarm to give yourself plenty of time to get ready.
  • Eat a meal or snack before the assessment.
  • Arrive early for the assessment so you’re not rushed.
  • Have fun!

We're More than Academics

We promote an enriched learning environment because it's a significant part of what differentiates us. We bring virtues such as respect, perseverance, compassion, and courage to every detail of our academic focus. These characteristics are essential to the success of young students today — and to the adults they become tomorrow. 

  • We created a curriculum specifically around Moral Focus.
  • We celebrate a “virtue of the month” every month.
  • Our students create a class contract where students agree how to treat their teacher and each other.
  • Students are recognized and celebrated for how they live out Moral Focus every day.

Parent

I love the emphasis on moral focus each month. Not only is my child receiving an education, but you are also teaching her qualities to be a good person.

Confidence Leads to Student Excellence

Pembroke Academy gives every child the right challenges at the the right time. This allows us to create an enriched learning environment that raises both expectations and academic excellence. When this environment is combined with moral focus, parental partnership, and student responsibility, the end result is really just the beginning toward a lifetime of success.
