CURRICULUM

Language

Students practice reading and writing skills covering topics in science, history, geography, and the arts. Formal grammar, punctuation, word study, spelling, and sentence analysis are systematically introduced upon mastering basic reading and writing.

Mathematics

Along with the principles of arithmetic, elementary students are introduced to the study of the fundamentals of algebra, geometry, logic, and statistics. The students also learn the practical applications of mathematics in every day life, such as measurement, handling finances, making economic comparisons, and gathering data and statistical analyses.

Science

The primary focus of the science curriculum is on the study of life, and the laws and structure of the universe. Students also learn about the process and “philosophy of science:” how to ask questions, observe systematically, collect specimens, gather and analyze data, and conduct experiments.

Cultural Studies

The goal of the cultural studies curriculum is to develop a global perspective. Consequently, the study of history and world cultures forms the cornerstone of the curriculum. Topics include: Physical geography— formation of the Earth, the emergence of the oceans and atmosphere, and the world’s rivers, lakes, deserts, mountain ranges and natural resources; Continents of the world— customs, housing, diet, government, industry, arts, history, and dress of people from around the world; Early man; Ancient civilizations, American History; Practical economics— how to compare prices against value, compute costs, maintain a checkbook, and understand the stock market; Citizenship— workings of the local, state and federal governments; and art/music history and appreciation.

SPECIALTY PROGRAMS

Specialty programs are integrated into the general daily schedule, at least once a week:

  • Technology: Academic games, keyboarding and mouse functions, word processing, graphing, basic internet use, OS navigation, and computer ethics
  • Spanish: Lessons develop conversational skills and an appreciation for the culture of the countries where the language is spoken
  • Music: Sequential development of concepts based on the elements of music, history and style and composition and performance
  • Physical Education & Yoga: Lessons develop fine and gross motor skills
  • Library: Lessons reinforce classroom learning through literature enrichment, author study, and library research skills
  • Art: Lessons incorporate drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and crafts
  • Service Learning: Integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to teach civic responsibility

FIELD TRIPS AND OUTREACH

The Elementary programs has four to six field trips and three to five outreach programs per academic year. In the past, we have visited the Maryland Science Center, Baltimore National Aquarium, National Museum of Natural History, Air & Space Museum, Sharp’s Farm, Walter’s Art Gallery, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and the Baltimore Zoo. Our summer program is divided into weekly themes. Based on the theme of the week, students create different arts and crafts projects and participate in outreach programs that focus on that weeks theme. In addition, we also offer sports camps in July and August.*
