|Elementary School Philosophy||| Print ||
In the elementary school we recognized that school must be a safe and encouraging environment that fosters risk taking necessary for the full development of a child. Realizing that children are motivated to learn when they experience success and develop understanding, teachers include finding and using information, making connections across the curriculum, and organizing learning around new concepts.
We believe that children take responsibility for their learning when they understand what it means to learn, to be reflective, and to set and reach personal learning goals. Knowing that children have their own unique learning styles, lessons are structured to meet the needs of all learners in the classroom with ongoing assessment strategies and timely feedback to support continuous learning.
A quality education is supported by a collaborative effort between home and school. In order for students to reach their potential, they must see their parents and teachers working together. Parents are encouraged to become active participants at school through volunteering in the classrooms or the school library, participating in special school events such as “Back to School Night” and parent workshops, or attendance at student performances.
