Language Arts/English

K¹² Language Arts/English helps students develop important reading and writing skills, while inspiring a love of literature. The program emphasizes classic works, writing as a process, and the skills that will be assessed in standardized tests. Younger children learn the basics of phonics and grammar and prepare for reading through systematic, multi-sensory activities, while older students develop literary analysis and comprehension skills by reading novels and nonfiction works.

Math

K¹² Math balances mastery of fundamental skills with critical thinking and problem-solving. An active, multi-sensory approach ensures that students understand concrete realities that underlie mathematical concepts. Online games and animations illustrate concepts, while challenge problems, regular practice, and review ensure mastery of basic skills. A thorough foundation is provided for younger students making links between the concrete and the abstract and older students encountering Algebra.

For all families

Science

K¹² Science balances hands-on experiments with the systematic study of terms and concepts in life, earth, and physical sciences. The program nurtures curiosity as students practice observation and analytical skills. Students learn how scientists understand our world and how the world is shaped by ongoing scientific and technological advances.

For all families

History

K¹² History—with integrated topics in geography and civics—opens young minds to far-off lands, distant times, and diverse cultures, emphasizing the story in history—a story that includes not only great men and women but also everyday people. Kindergarten students tour the seven continents and are introduced to some famous Americans. Students in grades 1–4 study civilization from the Stone Age to the Space Age, and older students explore major themes and topics in World and American History in greater depth.

For all families

World Languages

K¹² World Language courses help students read, write, speak, and listen for meaning through simple narratives, regular writing and speaking challenges, and games. Students learn common vocabulary terms and phrases, grammar patterns and principles, and the practices and perspectives of various cultures. Courses meet all national standards as set forth by ACTFL (the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) and follow state guidelines in covering level-appropriate standards.

For all families

Art

Following the timelines in K¹² History, K¹² Art introduces students to great works of art from different cultures and eras, while engaging them in creative activity—painting, drawing, molding with clay, etc. Students learn the elements of art; study important paintings, sculpture, and architecture; and explore different artistic movements, then create their own works of art, such as mobiles, collages, and stained glass.

For all families

Music

K¹² Music teaches basic Western music concepts at age-appropriate levels. The curriculum builds in a structured way, fostering increasing music comprehension skills as students move through their school years. More than simply music appreciation, this program helps students train their ears, voices, and bodies in the fundamental building blocks of music.
