Building Academic Skills and a Love of Learning
The primary grade years are a time filled with the excitement of learning new skills and building a strong foundation. The way we plan and structure our curriculum in primary grades is why our students love to learn. Our approach and practice are founded on the belief that students learn best when they can work at their own pace and level, they can construct meaning through inquiry, and they are allowed to take risks.
A time to Explore and Prepare
SRA’s Middle School offers a challenging, safe, and supportive place to learn and grow. We meet our learners where they are, both academically and social-emotionally, to help them develop their true potential. Our small class sizes ensure greater differentiation and personalized learning where students can advance at their own pace. Our advanced curriculum inspires students to expand their academic skills and independence. Collaborative projects reinforce the importance of cooperation and collective achievement, while interdisciplinary learning helps students make meaningful connections between coursework and real life, and fosters understanding and concern for others. Field trips, community service, guest speakers, projects, and other events expose our students to the outside world, and we consider them essential parts of learning. Students leave the Middle School fully prepared as ambitious, creative, self-motivated learners.
