Elementary I (EI)
EI is a multiage classroom consisting of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders. In EI, the students experience a wide range of lessons, from how to become independent learners to adding, multiplying, subtracting, and dividing–in the millions! Having the students in the same classroom for three consecutive years helps form a bond that is difficult to find in other schools; each student is looked at as an individual in the classroom. Throughout the day, students receive small group lessons in our classroom curriculum (see below). Simultaneously, other students self identify and choose other materials to explore and master. This not only solidifies the classroom bond, but it also grows our students’ autonomy and promotes their investment in education.
Courses taught in the EI classroom include:
- culture, which consists of a variety of sciences, history, the cosmic curriculum, and social studies.
