Core Academics

Students receive core instruction each day in reading, writing and math. Other core classes include social studies. All students in grades 3-5 are issued iPads and use them in their core classes, especially reading, regularly. We are constantly discussing ways to promote the 4 Cs: Critical thinking, Collaboration, Communication and Creativity.
