In our elementary program, we seek to nurture the academic, social and spiritual skills needed for our students to live, work, and play in community. We want our students to see the world from many perspectives and to experience the joy of learning. Being a small school allows us to be flexible and to be able to take advantage of new experiences when they arise. We can accommodate different learning styles and individualize instruction in order to meet children where they are and help them develop the skills necessary to progress socially, academically and spiritually.
We emphasize mastery of skills at the appropriate age/grade level for the various subject areas, including: reading, writing, literacy, comprehension, math, science, Hebrew, Torah, media, technology, holidays, social studies, social/emotional development, art, music and physical education. We are mindful of national and local standards and we strive to to support students as they grow and develop as thinkers and learners. Students are encouraged to ask good questions, think critically about issues, gather information carefully, and synthesize their ideas about what they have learned in order to present their results using a variety of tools and methods. Through their exposure to the various skill areas, students will have the opportunity to be creative, gain confidence, problem-solve, persevere, focus, gain independence, and work together as a group to learn from one another.
