Lower Division Program
Our primary program is structured to meet the needs of students in kindergarten through third grades through direct instruction and a multi-sensory approach to learning. Instruction is based on the NC Standard Course of Study; teachers differentiate their instruction to meet the needs of their students. Primary students take the following classes: reading, English, math, language arts, science, social studies, and specialists.
Our intermediate program includes grades four through six because we believe that these are such pivotal years for learning study skills to prepare for the increased expectation of independence experienced in junior high school. All classes are based on the NC Standard Course of Study. Teachers use accommodations and modifications where appropriate to ensure that the curriculum is accessible to all students. Small class sizes and the fact that students are taught using direct instruction, as well as a hands-on approach, make learning rewarding for all students. The family atmosphere and our safe, supportive environment help improve self- confidence, which in turn helps our students be in a better frame of mind to learn.
Other key features of our intermediate school are specials, ORB, the advisor/advisee relationship, organization, and the Academic Plan.
