K-5 Structure

12:1 Student Teacher Ratio
Grade levels keep to this ratio in general. We often combine the grade levels to offer students a larger group setting or ensemble experience.

School Day 9:00 am-2:00 pm K, 9:00 am-3:00 pm 1-3, 9:00 am-3:15 pm 4-5
We are a Responsive Classroom school who begins and ends each day with a class circle. Students have a morning snack, recess at the park or play yard daily with Physical Education one day a week in Kindergarten, two days a week grades 1-5, and lunch. Students bring their own lunch. Lunches are required to be nut-free and we ask that families consider using low-waste packaging. 

Single & Mixed Grade Levels
Students work in mixed-age groups for academics, which builds community and challenges their intellect. When appropriate, they are grouped by grade.

Exceptional, Collaborative Teaching
K-5 faculty co-teach all disciplines; in addition, we have specialist teachers for art, STEAM, and Physical Education. Teachers collaborate daily on planning and continually hone their skills by participating in ongoing professional development.
