Our Elementary School (Years 1 to 5) is based on the U.S. Common-Core curriculum in conjunction with the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) Every effort is made to ensure that students new to our school are appropriately placed after a review of their educational experience prior to arrival. Our academic program also includes Portuguese language instruction or Portuguese for Speakers of Other Languages (PSOL), as well as physical education, art, music, and library. Technology is integrated into the day to day learning of our students.
We provide students English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) instruction in the homeroom classes. When students need extra support the homeroom teacher, class assistant and ESOL teachers work together and a plan is designed to meet the specific needs of the learner.
Additionally, we provide learning support for students who have specific academic needs through our Student Support Services.
