Our Curriculum

Students receive rich and challenging instruction in the core subjects of reading and writing, social studies, science and math. Students also receive instruction from the specialist teachers in physical education, art, music, and Spanish. Each teacher collaborates with their grade level teaching partners in order to build curriculum experiences that connect not only the different subject areas, but that tie in to the different IB themes.

IB unit themes:

  • Who We Are
  • Where We Are in Time and Place
  • How We Express Ourselves
  • How the World Works
  • How We Organize Ourselves
  • Sharing the Planet

These unit themes will be developed more and more over time, so that eventually each grade level is exposed to all six unit themes throughout the school year.

Inquiry learning is also a large part of the curriculum in each classroom and subject area. Students are encouraged to wonder and ask questions about the content they are studying, in order to develop new pathways of personal study.
