In our Elementary School, academics are conveyed through intensive interdisciplinary projects and small-group work. Children learn to read, and practice math, in both languages. As they get older, small-group work enables teachers to work in greater depth with students and support their progress more intensively. Teachers guide children in explorations and experiments, preparing students to be lifelong learners.
