Discovery and Maturity

Our oldest classroom has up to 12 students with 2 teachers, focusing on their overall academics in a more formal learning environment, maturity as it relates to social relationships and personal responsibility.

Student’s are presented with traditional learning in math and language arts in accordance to the California academic content standards. Teachers use a variety of curriculums to meet each student at their level, and teach from there for advancement. Most students have advanced academic abilities in one area, and still need remediation in another.

To keep our highly animated group excited about learning, we use nature, museums, and exhibits to bring learning to life. Students are driven by their distinct interests in science and social studies to do research, present oral presentations, build models, type reports and document their learning through pictures, videos, and narratives.

Students in this classroom are advanced learners in many aspects, but still need a small environment that supports their sensory needs and anxiety. They have a great deal of knowledge on their specific interests and teachers use that passion to produce meaningful, and content standard based projects. Students that once struggled with anxiety become our key presenters! Students in this classroom are learners who excel in a small group, that is highly focused, with curriculum aimed to meet their learning style. These students enjoy learning from experts (and challenging their knowledge) in the science and mathematical fields and are great builders & engineers.

We follow the California academic content standards for each grade, differentiating to meet your child where they are at, and advancing from that point. We use a variety of curriculums, teaching styles, and a kinesthetic approach to teach to each individual child.

Our innovative curriculum provides social thinking opportunities, behavioral support systems, sensory integration, fine and gross motor benefit, project based academics and off campus extracurricular fun! Students engage in PE/Gross Motor work three times day, and have the option for occupational therapy and speech pull outs.
