These principles anchor our curriculum here at The Grammar School:
- We believe in graduating students who contribute to a kinder, more just, and connected world.
- We value kindness, play, environmental stewardship, growth mindset, and community.
- We foster the essential skills of critical thinking and problem solving, empathy, communication, collaboration, mindfulness, and sense of purpose.
- We teach to practice and build essential skills. Our curriculum is designed to teach content alongside critical skills.
Throughout the year, the work of each grade is focused on a particular skill or series of skills. Throughout the arc of a child’s time at TGS, s/he will practice and build upon these skills as s/he moves through the grades. Themes of individual and community, empathizing and working with others, building resilience, problem solving, and making connections appear across the grades.
