At Pine Street School we are passionate about youth, parents, our communities, and the big things they can accomplish together. We engage students by helping them forge meaningful relationships with the world at large.
Half-Day Preschool for 2 year olds runs from 9am-12pm and is part of the Spanish Dual Language Immersion track. Children engage in both Montessori experiences and International Baccalaureate (IB) units of inquiry. The focus is on developing self-management skills, social skills independence, creativity and confidence.
Half-Day Preschool for 3 year olds also runs from 9am-12pm and is part of the Spanish Dual Language Immersion track. Montessori pedagogy and practices are employed alongside the introduction of the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) curricula.
Full-Day Preschool for 3 & 4 year olds runs from 9am-3pm and offers a choice of Spanish or Mandarin Dual Language Immersion tracks, each paired with English. Students are engaged with both the Montessori method and the IB PYP curricula.
Students regularly engage in regular reflection on their work. 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.
