The Village Lower School
At The Village Lower School knowledge stems from the roots of exploration. We realize that each and every student comes to us with their own unique ways of learning. Our goal is to nurture these talents by providing students with an academic and social experience that stimulates and cultivates their wondrous young minds. The curriculum combines a hands-on approach with a creative teaching method, while preserving the individuality of every student.
We are currently accepting applications for our 2019-2020 Kindergarten class!
Language Arts: To help children grow into successful readers and writers we incorporate guided, shared, and independent reading and writing sessions. Specific components of our language arts program include Fundations, Fountas & Pinnell Literacy, and Handwriting Without Tears.
Mathematics: We implement My Math, a program fully aligned to the Common Core State Standards. Mathematical concepts that are explored include number sense, estimation, measurement, geometry, and patterning.
Science: Student learning flourishes in a hands-on environment where children learn why phenomenon occur, test hypotheses & prove theories, collect & analyze data, make predictions, and draw conclusions.
Social Studies: Designed to create awareness of environmental & social issues. Through virtual journeys and exploration, students make connections among themselves, community, traditions and the environment.
Spanish, Music, Art, Physical Education, Health, and Library are also incorporated as an integral part of each week.
