Primary School


Kindergarten-5th grade students are eager to learn. They are busy developing new skills, making friends, asking questions, and exploring the world around them.
Our Primary School program fosters students’ intrinsic motivation and instills a habit of learning. It’s not simply about teaching facts and figures; it’s about developing the ability and inclination to think critically, analytically, creatively, and practically.

We cultivate a warm and respectful learning community. The values of self-control, caring for others, friendship, and conflict resolution are mainstays of our life together.

Teachers are facilitators and guides. They design units with an eye toward outcomes that deepen both conceptual understanding and skill development. Teachers have the flexibility to respond to student needs and adapt the curriculum to make it relevant to the interests of students each year.
