Elementary students (ages 6-12) are empowered to become confident, competent students. Our classroom is a unique environment in which instruction begins with concrete realities, adding one difficulty at a time, moving sequentially into abstract theory. The development of critical thinking skills occurs naturally in this age level and in this type of prepared environment. Active learning with hands-on tasks supports the growth of social skills, and the ability to reflect and work things out. These are qualities needed throughout life to be successful.
In the Elementary program students are given opportunity to work together or alone to pursue individual or group interests. Each student’s creativity, independent thinking, and personal responsibility are facilitated by the prepared environment and their teacher.
This is also the age when the child develops a moral sense, learning what is "fair" and "not fair." The students strive to find how they can play an important and meaningful role in their class, family, community and life.
The Elementary Curriculum includes:
• Practical Life
• Cultural Studies
• Science and Social studies
“We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are part of the universe and are connected with each other to form one whole unity.”
