The nurturing that begins in our preschool continues into the elementary school division with our attentive and knowledgeable certified teachers who are specialists in furthering students’ interest and dedication to learning. Each student is given the tools and support to grow to his or her potential and is provided with life-long skills to develop self-confidence and an enthusiasm for learning. The SCES community encourages students to work progressively, collaboratively, and purposefully. In this setting, students can make connections between their past knowledge and new skills and information and begin to think critically. In our elementary school, our activities work in concert with one another. Academics, learning excursions, authors’ presentations, ,student performances, service learning projects, and more are developed with the idea of providing a variety of experiences to cultivate high-level thinking skills and promote social skills.
If children feel safe, they can take risks, ask questions, make mistakes, learn to trust, share their feelings and grow.
