Lower School Reading & Math
As the central building blocks of all academics, the focus on reading and math is tuned into empowering students with foundational skills to set them up for future success. We recognize that each child has the ability to love reading, but must find his or her own path to discover the types of books that will capture that passion. The reading program is structured such that students build confidence and experience success through a progression of instructional, guided and independent reading.
The math program permits students to explore math concepts at a deeper level by using a multi-faceted approach to not only solve the problem, but to understand the relationship between numbers and operations. This translates into students who can apply math concepts in authentic learning activities outside of math class.
