We pride ourselves in the low teacher-to-student ratio at all levels, providing good educational interaction and personal attention. Class size is limited to 22 in Kindergarten and 1st Grade with the assistance of a kindergarten aid throughout the week. Grades 2-8 are generally limited to 24 students.
We believe we have found a good balance with the use of technology. Our goal is to use technology to help enhance the learning experience and to prepare our students for the technological world we live in. Each classroom is equipped with an interactive white board and electronic student feedback. We utilize a state of the art computer lab with all grade levels taking a computer class as part of the curriculum. We also use a mobile iPad card for certain activities and resources in the classroom. Our website and regular use of e-reminders, apps, and email helps parents and students stay current on assignments, activities, and school related news. Parents of students in the upper grades are provided a password so they can comfortably monitor their student's progress through online teacher grade books. Gradelink is used for teacher/parent communication, applying, enrolling, and viewing grades.
We recognize that each student learns at a different rate. While most needs are met by our qualified teachers and good classroom instruction, there may also exist a need for assistance in learning, both for remediation and for enhancement the educational process. If a need is greater, we have a variety of specialists available to help with most learning difficulties on a cost per service basis. For more questions please feel free to email us.
Homework gives students an opportunity to practice what has been taught in the classroom. It also provides parents the opportunity to monitor and assist in the educational process. While regular homework routines are necessary and valuable, they are not meant to overload the student with academic stress. We encourage you to communicate with your student's teacher if you have questions or concerns. We give homework Mon-Thurs. with weekends being free. Parents should plan to set aside homework time based on the child's grade, at 10 minutes per grade level per day. For example, Grade 3 averages 30 minutes and grade 4 averages 40 minutes.
