The overall goal of the program for Kindergarten through Fifth Grade is to provide each child with a variety of learning experiences guided by enthusiastic teachers who recognize that children grow in unique and varying ways. The School’s culture encourages each student to strive for a high level of academic achievement while gaining self-confidence. Our experience has shown that initial appropriate placement is the key to educational success; therefore, great care is taken to ascertain the developmental readiness of each child.
Primary and Lower School incorporate a variety of teaching methods and technology, including interactive white boards, iPads, and laptops. Viewpoint’s philosophy maintains that a quality education teaches children to think and to develop good judgment. The acquisition of these skills relies on a thorough interdisciplinary curriculum that relates all subject matter in a sequential manner.
Specialized classroom environments and trained teachers in subjects such as art, world languages, music, library, technology, physical education, and science complement the core curriculum.
