  • Performances

    Every grade level is involved in performances throughout the school year. Some of the favorites include the Kindergarten Cinderella Ball in which students sing opera and show off their ballroom dancing skills, the fifth grade Living History Museum, and the sixth grade major musical theater production.
  • Integrated Mathematics-Visual Arts Program

    With the guidance of Dr. Robin Ward, a Ph.D. mathematics educator and author, 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.
