integrated curriculum enhances opportunities for spiritual, academic,
artistic, musical, technological and physical development.
Such a curriculum is challenging and goal-oriented. It employs methods, tools, and technology that is reasonable and appropriate to each child's age and development. Our curricula teaches concepts appropriate to the child's grade level and ability and concepts are built upon information learned from previous years. All areas of the curriculum are introduced, developed, mastered or maintained depending on the grade. The students are assessed in many ways both formally and informally through observation, class participation, homework, projects, quizzes, and tests. As you review our curriculum, you will see that teaching children is important to us.
The strength of our curriculum is validated by various measures. IOWA Test of Basic Skills scores demonstrate academic achievement well above the national average. Many of our middle school students qualify for the John Hopkins Talent Search. The Spanish program from kindergarten through grade 8, creates cultural awareness and exposes our students to beginning Spanish language skills. A computer teacher, a fully equipped computer lab, and computers in every classroom enhance technology integration throughout the curriculum. Finally, our school boasts a full sized gymnasium.
We know that Our Heavenly Father has a plan for your children. The collaborative work between parents and teachers is sure to be seen when the children are ready for their life's work. The children can say with enthusiastic readiness as Samuel did, "Speak Lord, for your servant is listening" (Samuel 3:10) in the tradition of excellence which is the hallmark of a Catholic education.
