Kindergarten - 2nd Grade

Kindergarten through second grade is a time of rapid growth and development. As children progress into higher-level thinking in literacy, math, science, and social studies, they also gain greater awareness of the world around them. At this age, their hearts and minds are especially open to building empathy, compassion, and understanding for others. They learn to read, and learn to express their ideas. This time is especially foundational for mastering simple skills that will pave the way for other subjects, more complex problem-solving, developing moral attributes, and beyond.

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.

Our Moral Focus Program

We believe strong minds and hearts can impact the world in amazing ways. That's why we empasize virtues such as respect, perseverance, compassion, and courage as part of our daily curriculum. We know these qualities are essential to helping kids become truly successful, make good decisions, and do what's right. "Moral Focus" is integrated into everything we do. That's why we:

  • Created a curriculum specifically for Moral Focus.
  • Celebrate a different "virtue of the month" throughout the year.
  • Have students create a class contract where they agree how they'll treat their teacher and one another.
  • Recognize and celebrate students for how they live out Moral Focus every day.
