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, creativity, 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.
