  • Everyday Mathematics

    Everyday Mathematics is a comprehensive research-based and field-tested mathematics program developed by The University of Chicago School Mathematics Project that continually reinforces abstract math concepts through concrete real-world applications. With a focus on problem-solving, its guiding principles encourage students to reason abstractly and quantitatively, construct and defend viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others, develop conceptual and procedural and models, attend to precision, and use appropriate tools and technology strategically.
  • Integrated Mathematics-Visual Arts Program

    Students engage in additional, integrated learning experiences by which they further explore mathematical concepts and skills using the visual arts as a lens. Students learn about artists by viewing and discussing images of their work, and then create artifacts (painting, sketch, collage, etc.) in the spirit of the featured artist. By viewing their finished masterpieces, students discover, explore, and discuss the mathematics used and embedded in their art. This innovative approach to learning illuminates for students the connections between math and the visual arts, and thus the importance and relevance of learning mathematics.
  • Literacy CAFÉ

    The CAFÉ system allows a teacher to make meaning of student assessment data. Teachers have individualized information on each child and can truly design instruction around each child’s specific needs.

    • Comprehension– I understand what I read. 
    • Accuracy – I can read the words.
    • Fluency– I can read accurately, with expression, and I understand what I read. 
    • Expand Vocabulary– I know, find, and use interesting words.
  • Religion

    Kindergarten through 2nd grade students attend Godly Play once a week where they are taught an awareness of God’s presence in their lives through the telling and discussion of Bible stories and parables.

  • Exploratorium

    The All Saints’ Exploratorium is a new collaborative, project-based learning center and design-thinking lab in the Lower School. The Exploratorium allows students to use their creativity and imaginations in a hands-on learning environment, leveraging technology as needed. Students engage in authentic problem solving and build meaningful skills like resiliency, cooperation, design-thinking and creativity. The vision for, and execution of, this space has been led by Ann-Marie McCollough, STEAM and Project-Based Learning Coordinator, but all lessons and activities are co-planned and co-taught with the classroom teacher to ensure content connectivity between learning spaces. 
  • Social Studies

    The social studies curriculum is centered on responsible citizenship, community, and history. Geography and map skills are also studied. Fourth grade focuses on studying the state of Texas. The Great Lives Series is used in 5th and 6th grade to study the geography and history of the U.S. from prehistoric times to the Civil War, and the Civil War to present day respectively. Current events are a key part of social studies in every grade level.  
  • Spanish

    Our Spanish program features linguistic studies, active learning, and cultural studies of Spanish speaking countries. Throughout Lower School students build on previous studies through reading and writing in Spanish, dialoging, expressing their thoughts, and using vocabulary to express themselves.
    Kindergarten has Spanish 3 times per week.  1st-6th grades have Spanish 2 times per week.
  • STEM Club

    (After School Program
    Kindergarten through 2nd grade students will learn about science, technology, engineering and math concepts, and how they relate to real-life experiences. The teacher, Sandi Bertocci, will deliver hands-on enrichment activities covering robotics, engineering, countertop chemistry, nature and ecology, reptiles and dinosaurs. 
  • Technology

    Lower School students engage in digital learning woven into every subject in the classroom curriculum as well as in their weekly Technology Lab course. In class, students use iPads or Chromebooks for station work, collaboration, formative assessment, research, and project-based learning. In the Technology Lab, they learn computer skills, keyboarding, introductory coding, and how to use the Microsoft and Google suites. They also participate in lessons on internet safety and Digital Citizenship both in Technology Lab and the Library. For more information, visit our Technology page.
