ELEMENTARY CURRICULUM OVERVIEW

Language Arts

English Language Arts (ELA)

Math

Students are taught Singapore Math. This method uses mathematical concepts in a three-step learning process: concrete, pictorial, and abstract. It allows the student different ways to solve a problem and are able to determine which way works best for them. 

 

Greek Language

Students attend 50 minutes of Greek Language and 50 minutes of Greek Math each day. K-2nd Greek Math is co-taught with the Greek & Homeroom teachers. Our Greek Program is taught immersion style. Our students don't focus solely on the language however, focus is also placed on Greek culture, including foods, dancing and music. To learn more about out Greek Program visit our Greek page

Signature Experiences

 

Off Campus Field Trips

Each grade level participates in a Field Trip off campus each year. Some of our past field trips include, the Columbia Zoo, Discovery Place, and Imaginon.

On Campus Field Trips

Our Scholars experience several on-campus field trips throughout the year. Some of our past on campus trips include, The Charlotte Ballet, Opera Carolina and Storyteller Donna Washington.

Yiasou Festival

First, Third & Fifth Grade Scholars get to experience Greek culture, food and music first hand by attending Charlotte's own Yiasou Festival!

HOMEWORK

We believe the purpose of homework is practice instead of mastery. That means that while our students do receive homework, we prefer for most of their work to be in the classroom. We are a "homework light" school.

TECHNOLOGY

Our scholars aren't in front of a computer screen all day long! In fact, most of our teachers prefer hands-on or direct-method teaching. Technology is used in our classrooms to support teaching, not replace it.

We do not allow any students to use cell phones during school hours.
