Grades K-5

Learning by Doing

 

Schoolhouse’s K-5 program inspires students to be creative, think critically, and explore the world around them while they gain essential skills in all disciplines. Truly integrated projects generated by student interest capture the learners’ imaginations and desire for knowledge. Adventure days offer students additional hands on experience to pique their curiosity and opportunities to apply academic learning. The daily schedule provides students with structured academic skill building, time in nature, exploration, stimulating projects, and collaboration. Our program prepares students for life.

[What I like about Schoolhouse] "Is that we always choose something for a topic to study and create a cool project, and we work on it all year." 3rd Grader
