  • 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.
  • Daily 5

    The Daily 5 creates a literacy structure conducive to learning for every child. Children will have the opportunity to receive whole group, small group, and individualized instruction based on their specific needs as a reader. Students in kindergarten through second grade practice all five components every day: 

    1. Read to self
    2. Read to someone
    3. Work on writing
    4. Listen to reading
    5. Word work
     
  • 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.
  • 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.  
  • Science Lab

    Kindergarten-4th grade students experience hands on science and exploration in the science lab every week.  Inquiry and experiments drive their learning.  Topics covered include the scientific method, life science, physical science, earth science, and physics.  Cooperative learning and application of concepts are key components of the science lab curriculum.
  • 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.
  • 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. Third through 6th grade students attend Religion class weekly. They study the Bible, world religions, current issues in society, interpersonal skills and development.
  • 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.
  • Chess Club

    (After School Program
    Jonathan Cearley has been a full-time chess instructor for more than 17 years. His impressive background includes chess scholarships and state and national titles. He has taught players in the national TOP 100 list for scholastic play.
  • Mind Lab

    (After School Program
    Mind Lab is an innovative and research-based program that helps children enhance their cognitive, social and emotional skills using internationally-acclaimed strategy games. Mind Lab has developed a unique approach that fills the gap between school education and real life challenges by teaching students how to think rather than what to think. The extensive research conducted by Yale University endorses that the Mind Lab method significantly improves math and verbal skills as well as other important thinking skills.
  • Engineering + LEGOs

    (After School Program
    Led by the instructors of Play-Well TEKnologies, students learn engineering principles while building with LEGOs. The curriculum was designed by engineers and educators to build on the math and science skills students learn during the school year and apply them in real-world engineering scenarios using over 1,000,000 LEGO pieces.
