The Elementary curriculum offers a technology-enabled, project-based problem-solving setting that nurtures passion with a purpose. Our program focuses on guided inquiry, collaboration and communication as approaches, providing an environment that fosters the development of problem solving and critical thinking as well as subject competencies.
In Kindergarten, we emphasize academic, social, emotional, physical and cultural growth through a foundation of international study and citizenship. Our learners become internationally-educated citizens through a focus on the development of positive attitudes towards self, towards people, towards the environment and towards learning.
The International Baccalaureate (“the IB”) is known for its academic rigor and highly respected among colleges and universities worldwide. It is considered a gold standard in education. Through both a unique curriculum approach and unique teaching methods it develops the intellectual, emotional and physical potential of each child.
Dual Language Immersion
At Pine Street School, students have two teachers in the classroom, each working in English or Spanish/Mandarin Chinese in small groups, all day long. Academic content is taught and assessed in two languages over an extended period of time. Due to small group teaching and individualized learning plans, the rate of fluency is higher than a standard language immersion program.
