In first grade, our goal is to actively engage students in their own learning process. We emphasize hands-on experiences that take into account individual interests and learning styles, and keep class sizes small so that teachers can cater to the needs of each child. We place great value on self-discovery, incorporating open-ended activities that foster skill acquisition and creative expression.
First graders are encouraged to become contributing members of their community. Children learn to listen and show respect for others, demonstrate compassion and empathy, and cooperate with peers. Teachers are guides and role models within a safe, loving and inspiring environment.
