Elementary School Program Overview
With Quo Vadis? (Where are you going?) as our school motto, the Cloverleaf elementary program serves to prepare students in grades K-4th for their next destination by utilizing a multi-disciplinary approach that constantly balances challenge with support in academic, physical, and social-emotional arenas.
Students engage in 90 minutes of daily language arts instruction as well as 60 minutes of daily math instruction and practice. In addition to academics, students receive daily social skills instruction and participate weekly in inquiry-based, student-led collaborative projects. Teachers facilitate students in learning cycles for which they collectively create goals, set criteria, and receive feedback. Throughout this process, students self-reflect to monitor their own social and academic progress.
Students are strategically grouped with a variety of students throughout the day, with no more than six students in an academic class. We carefully examine many aspects, such as age and current ability, to determine academic, social skills, and enrichment groupings. Groupings are also flexible to accommodate for student growth.
