Grades: First through Fourth

Students are required to complete all courses required by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The curriculum is typical of any elementary program and includes English, Reading, Spelling, Handwriting, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Art, Speech and Physical Education.

Teachers provide the students with opportunities to experience their subjects through hands-on activities. Report cards give parents and students a comprehensive picture of the student’s progress and attitude toward learning. Each student’s progress is evaluated four times per year. The grades and the teacher comments reflect the student’s progress in reference to his/her IEP and to the development of his/her work characteristics and social skills.

All of the Elementary School students participate in a variety of field trips throughout the school year. Each trip helps students to practice, experience, or expand on the learning activities they were working on in class.
