The curriculum is defined by the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP), and is supported by resources and methodologies from a variety of internationally recognized sources, including Montessori, Reading and Writing Workshops from Teachers College, and Mathematics Investigations developed at TERC.
Kindergarten is open to children who will turn 5 by December 31 of their entering school year. When entering kindergarten, families choose a Mandarin or Spanish Dual Language Immersion track.
Students engage in daily reflection on their work, review their ePortfolios, and discuss their progress with their teachers. They actively participate in the three annual conferences: parent-teacher, parent-teacher-student, and student-led. They are confident sharing what they have learned and discussing openly the challenges and growth they are experiencing. All of this information is reflected in the student report cards.
