Primary School

Primary Level Program

Our elementary students experience hands-on learning in a nurturing environment.
Through daily interaction with technology and classroom manipulatives, students grow and learn.  Students develop strong peer relationships through inquiry-based learning and collaborative work.  With a variety of unique activities, students develop responsibility and independence in a  positive learning environment that fosters creativity, exploration, confidence and pride.
