Grades K-3

A strong foundation of learning in the primary grades leads to life-long learning success.  We provide a strong foundation by providing high quality instruction aligned to the rigor of the state standards grades kindergarten through three. Classroom lessons are planned and implemented for reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies with an expectation of high student engagement. Opportunities for collaboration and conceptual understanding of learning are incorporated into the lessons and assessments. Teachers frequently check for understanding to ensure every child is learning and achieving.
