We are very excited about our academic programs. We chose programs
very carefully based on on evidence-based research, academic merits, and
alignment with the mission and vision of our school.
We use Investigations in Number, Data, and Space in grades k-5, and Connected Math in grades 6-8. These programs involve hands-on interactive activities and develop strong math thinking skills.
We have Readers and Writers Workshop
from Columbia University Teachers’ College Reading & Writing
Project across the entire school. Our teachers went for summer training
to Columbia University for the past two years and came back each time
with a huge number of ideas and strategies. In additon, we use Fundations in grades k-3 to strengthen phonetic awareness and build strong decoding skills for our developing readers.
For Social Studies in grades 2-8 we have History Alive!. This is a very interactive program and we are so pleased to have it in our school this year. Read what our Education Director has to say on this topic.
