The goal of first grade is for students to become successful, motivated, lifelong learners. It is our belief that children learn best by doing. First graders build skills and confidence through active learning in small groups, individually, and through shared activities. The class works together to create an atmosphere that is a friendly and safe place to learn throughout the year. They take ownership of their learning while becoming responsible and resilient students. With an integrated curriculum that is geared towards hands on experiences, the first grade spends countless hours exploring nature and discovering the joy and lessons it has to offer.
