The curriculum of Grades 1-4 provides the solid academic and spiritual foundation needed for our students to succeed.  Independence is encouraged, as is individual responsibility and a commitment to others.  Problem-solving, creative and critical thinking skills and advanced skill development in Math, Reading and Science are hallmarks of the these grades.    Daily differentiated learning continues in math and language arts.  The language arts program includes several novel studies throughout the year in grades 3-4 and writing is emphasized in all subject areas.
