The rich language development that begins in the primary classrooms is used as the foundation of the elementary language curriculum.
The elementary child typically enters the classroom as a reader and a writer. The curriculum works to expand these abilities by raising the child's awareness of the rules, patterns and functions of language. This is accomplished by a thorough study of the following topics:
Each child is exposed to a variety of literature and poetry. The study of literature allows the child to discover the elements of style and how it may be incorporated into their own writing. The language curriculum allows the child to "unlock" the mysteries of the English language and to develop a natural interest in reading and writing.
Scholarship program available to Primary (3 - 6) and Elementary (6 - 12) aged children. All information is provided to FAST and kept confidential to Independent School Management FAST advisors. Opens Jan. 1st for the following Fall school year. Closes April 30th.
"The child is truly a miraculous being, and this should be felt deeply by the educator."
Dr. Maria Montessori
