Grades 2–3

The 2-3 program emphasizes individual growth, collaborative inquiry, and student engagement in both academic and social realms. We foster skills and values that serve children their entire lives—a love of learning, an openness to new experiences, growing independence, and respect for others. A primary goal is to create a community of learners in which children are able to learn from one another, their teachers, and the world around them. Students develop a sense of independence and responsibility in solving conflicts with peers, contributing positively to the community, and taking an active role in caring for their environment.
