What we do?

            Our Elementary School program provides leaders with a supportive learning environment and dynamic educational experiences that enable them to achieve academic success, gain knowledge in core subject areas, and develop personal responsibility and integrity. Combining academics with a strong sense of leadership, we help children to become global citizens, problem solvers, lifelong learners, and leaders.

Why?

            The main objective of the St. Mary’s School’s is elementary program is to enhance the children’s social skills and self-image.  In order to be successful learners cooperation, turn-taking, and problem solving skills must be developed.  In addition, it is important for children to feel confident in their ability to make choices, initiate learning encounters, ask questions, and use their own knowledge.

How?

             St. Mary’s elementary school curriculum is challenging based on US standards aligned with the standards of Ministry of Education of the Dominican Republic.  We consistently provide an innovative approach to learning, resulting in leaders who are well prepared, engaged, and proud of their accomplishments.

            The instruction provides activities that stimulate, challenge, and meet the abilities and interest of children. Activities and lessons are designed to insure a developmentally appropriate, child centered program.  Although the curriculum is teacher-prepared, it is responsive to the children’s interests, needs, and levels of development.

 

            We recognize that children learn through meaningful experiences.  Therefore, different methodologies are used according to the objective and groups.   These different methodologies will strive to foster learning experiences that expand the children’s knowledge of the world and themselves.  Each child has the opportunity to enjoy success by actively participating in activities and communicating in all forms. Students have multiple opportunities to explore and express themselves through music and art.
