Our elementary school is a community with a diverse culture. Its environment is, safe, inclusive, warm, and supportive. Our students are children and enjoy school. We offer a variety of activities each year to promote a sense of community spirit, including Field Day, UN Day Assembly, and monthly life skill assemblies. Students have a voice and decision-making power through our student council and service club. Students and teachers are involved in a variety of service projects in school as well as in the community.
The elementary school includes 20 self–contained classes with a maximum of 18 students in each class as well as classrooms for art, music, band, computer, and Spanish. In addition, our facility includes an adequate playground with a soccer field and basketball court, a large gymnasium, and spacious library. Students enjoy having snack and lunch in our full service cafeteria. We also have a stage in our cafeteria to be used for assemblies, concerts, and presentations.
Teachers have organized spaces to suit the learning styles of our students. Desks are arranged in groups or circles so students can work collaboratively. Classrooms have small rugs and pillows which are used for morning meetings or so that students can sprawl comfortably on the floor while they read. Students take advantage of the outdoor hallways and gardens to work independently or in small groups. A number of our teachers take advantage of the beautiful gardens as an extension of their classes.
