In geography, the student explores the universe and many of its facets from the earliest time imaginable, including such topics as composition, the formation of mountains and faults, the effects of wind and water, natural resources and environmental interfaces.
The children study biology, including plants and animals. In plant study, students learn about parts, functions, seeds and varieties and classification. They also study the classification of animals and their functions. Older students participate in dissection of simple plants and animals, gaining experiences and knowledge first hand.
The emphasis In cultural subjects at the Elementary level Is different from the Primary approach. The interrelationship of disciplines, arts, and sciences are of primary importance at the Elementary level. History, developing the sense of chronological time, provides a bridge of culture In art, architecture, music, drama and dance. All of these aspects are presented to help each student develop an awareness of her own special time and place in the universe.
Physical education is part of the Elementary level curriculum. Basic ball handling skills, cardiovascular exercises, organized games and sports are just some of the areas covered. Each year, we invite businesses in the local community to provide extra curricular activities at our school as well.
