Arts & Innovation Immersion
Beginning in kindergarten, our unique curriculum inspires students to explore their creativity and individual talents in specialized arts and science classes.
All kindergarten through fourth grade students receive daily instruction in the arts and sciences in addition to their academic classes. It is wonderful to see the excitement and curiosity that our young students bring to these classes each day!
Kindergarten through fourth grade students participate in the following classes each week:
- Creative Writing
- French Language
- Innovations in Science
- Instrumental Music
- Visual Arts
- Vocal Music
As students progress in these specialized classes, they gain and develop a variety of skills in addition to content knowledge, including:
- higher order thinking
- critical thinking
There are multiple opportunities for students in all grades to showcase their academic and artistic studies, such as yearly concerts and performances.
Kindergarten through fourth grade are the years where our students are able to try all of the specialized classes we offer and discover what interests them most. By fifth grade, students enter the Majors Program, and narrow their focus to an artistic or academic area of study.
Research shows that early foreign language exposure enhances a child’s primary language development, thus increasing brainpower!
This is why we begin our foreign language skills program in kindergarten, which naturally leads to greater success in foreign language study in high school and college. French is our language of choice and the language of the arts. The French Department uses the American Council of Teaching Foreign Language Standards for the curriculum, providing students with an interdisciplinary, cross-curricular study of the French language and culture.
