Kindergarten – Grade 4
During the primary years, students at The Banner School grow leaps and bounds toward becoming independent learners. Basic skills in reading, writing, and mathematics develop through a consistent scope and sequence using Singapore Math and Open Court Reading Programs. Cursive handwriting is taught as part of our language arts curriculum starting in 2nd grade.
Instruction in science, social studies, and Spanish are part of the regular school schedule, along with physical education, art, technology, and music and performing arts. A dedicated spacious science classroom provides opportunities for hands-on activities and campus projects related to physical, environmental, and biological science topics.
Students participate in field trips that are related to core studies, as well as dramatizations based on literary themes or social studies connections.
Organization, research, and study skills are reinforced throughout all subject areas, preparing students for the middle school years that lie ahead.
We never forget that we are educating children. Their playful nature, inquisitiveness, and energy are celebrated at The Banner School. This is a school that teaches children, not just course content.
Our staff includes a Learning Specialist, who collaborates with teachers to provide enrichment and support for students in the Primary School.
The small class size at The Banner School enhances our opportunities to offer personalized attention so that we can identify and meet child-specific goals. Our classes average between 12 to 15 students.
We welcome your family to a child-centered, academically challenging, and nurturing environment in which to foster success and a love of learning that lasts a lifetime!
