The Elementary School years are a critical time for students to not only learn fundamental concepts and mechanics, but to also develop learning skills and approaches that will set the stage for a lifetime of success. Calvert’s engaging Kindergarten – 5th Grade programs focus on children’s natural curiosity and encourage them to delve deep into topics and subject areas – not because they have to – but because they are passionate about learning.
All Calvert Elementary School programs include a variety of learning approaches, along with multi-sensory and hands-on activities that appeal to a variety of learning styles. These activities focus on children’s natural sense of curiosity and encourage students to explore and discover.
Our elementary school curriculum focuses on the four core subject areas: Language Arts, Math, Science, and History. Students will develop strong reading comprehension skills, write original composition pieces, develop critical thinking skills, learn fundamental math concepts, read classic literature, explore a variety of science topics, and learn about the world around them.
At Calvert, we understand that today’s students learn differently than students many years ago. That’s why we continually review our programs to include the most up-to-date teaching approaches that appeal to young learners. All Elementary School programs also include integrated technology lessons that coincide with subjects and lessons. Your child won’t learn technology skills in isolation, but will develop an understanding and appreciation on how to apply these skills to their everyday work.
Our engaging Elementary School curriculum will encourage your student to explore, discover, and excel, while learning fundamental concepts that lead to academic success for years to come. Learn more about our program options below.
