Nurturing the creative problem-solver, from the arts to the sciences
The upper elementary program (grades 3, 4, and 5) recognizes that it is in these formative years where we begin to build the solid foundations for a lifetime of learning. Building upon children’s natural curiosity and sense of wonder, we inspire them to stretch themselves, to persevere, and to try new things. Play is treated as an essential part of cognitive growth, and our interdisciplinary program incorporates drama, dance, music, and poetry as a means of fostering creativity, self-expression, and individual meaning-making.
Our classrooms and other learning spaces serve as workspaces and studios where student work is in progress and on display. We infuse project-based learning, problem solving, and budding engineering skills into our curriculum through the MakerSpace Design Studio, where children invent, build, and tinker.
