Lower School Grades K-5
We feel blessed to be able to have our kids in a place where they are loved, where God is put first, and that provides a solid education in a great environment.
Learning here is about nurturing young minds curious about the world and their place in it.
Molding a growth mindset through perseverance and a positive attitude is the best way to start the journey. From there, specific study skills are more easily grasped while mastering critical foundational strategies. This enables students to broaden perspectives and build the capacity for knowledge. Children can then learn to celebrate their own, and one another’s, gifts and differences as unique creations of God. Together, all of this instills a love of learning... for a lifetime.
Why does CHRISTIAN education matter in elementary school?
According to research, a child’s spiritual foundation is set by the age of 13. And — even more critical — a person’s moral foundations are in place by age 9. This is why we believe in reaching the heart of the child early in his/her school career. Read more about this topic in the WingTips blog.
We know you have questions about lower school and would love to be your guide.
Previously, my child struggled with math. Her teacher was quick to tell me that she felt my daughter knew the material. Together, we developed a strategy to assess my child. My heart was set at ease, and my daughter has a new confidence about herself. Her teacher could have left my daughter with forever anxiety about school, but she did not. Instead, she went out of her way to allow my child the opportunity to shine. Isn’t that the true goal anyway? What a gem we have in our teachers. K. Surgala
