Our literacy program is built on the foundations of guided reading and the workshop model. One hallmark of guided reading is that each child is assessed completely at the beginning and middle of each school year and taught with a small group of students at his or her instructional level – these groups are fluid, and change with the needs of the child to make sure they are always learning at the level ‘just right’ for them. In grades K-2, teachers use the myView & Wilson Fundations curriculums as a roadmap to lead students through a rich and diverse experience with literature and fundamental reading skills; grades 3-5 implement Lucy Calkins’ Readers & Writers Workshop & Words Their Way to build upon this foundation.
In mathematics, we are committed to the Eureka program at all grade levels through a workshop model approach. Math Workshop approach allows for deeper conceptual understanding and provides the opportunity for small group instruction geared to personal needs. Students in grades K-5 also use ST Math as part of the core curriculum. ST Math is a visual instructional program that leverages the brain’s spatial-temporal reasoning ability to solve mathematical problems.
