Our First Grade curriculum is designed to help children develop strong academic habits, build caring relationships, and foster independent thinking.
First graders are included in every aspect of school life and they are active participants in all that our school's beautiful campus has to offer. While homeroom classes are devoted to building a strong foundation in reading, writing, science, and mathematics, the children also work with master teachers who share their expertise in art, Spanish, music, physical education, library, and Character Education.
The biomimicry design thinking project, Zooming with classroom connections from all over the world to study diversity, and a field trip to Santa Lucia Preserve are some of the many highlights of the school year.
The tradition of our rich curriculum and nurturing community work together to develop the academic practices and social skills that will serve our students during this very important first year as well as the years ahead.
