Active learners, creative lessons, dynamic and flexible teachers
With our small class sizes (10:1), student voices are heard, every student is fully engaged in the classroom, and all are accountable for their own part in their learning.
The methods of instruction from preschool to eighth grade encourage students to think critically, to express themselves creatively, and to relish in discovering. The objective is to create life-long learners who are equipped to adapt to the rapid changes inherent to the workplace in the modern world. The faculty continually assesses and reviews the curriculum and creates innovative approaches to implement this objective.
The Christ Episcopal School program emphasizes:
- Critical thinking skills.
- Problem solving.
- Cooperative learning.
- Curriculum integration, especially English, social studies, and arts.
- Practical application of learned concepts.
- Performance assessment through multiple tools.
The belief is that through these educational techniques students grow intellectually as well as personally. Their enthusiasm for learning and the self-confidence gained from this approach remain with the students throughout their academic years and into adulthood.
