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-3:00 pm
We are a Responsive Classroom school who begins and ends each day with a class circle. Students have snack at 10:15 am, recess at the Park starting at 11:30 am (with Physical Literacy one day a week), and lunch at 12:45 pm. Students bring their own lunch. Lunches are required to be vegetarian and nut-free (fish is permissible, no shellfish please).

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; however, we do have special teachers for art, STEAM, and Physical Literacy. Teachers collaborate daily on planning and continually hone their skills by participating in ongoing professional development.
