Upper Elementary

IMG_5226.JPGSoaring Ever Higher

The Rose and Alex Pilibos Elementary is abuzz with learning, fun and a growing awareness of each student’s impact on the larger community and the world. An atmosphere of joy, kindness, and respect permeates our campus. Our students are immersed in a stimulating academic environment and encouraged to try new things, make new friends, and discover or grow a passion through our rigorous and relevant curriculum and intentionally designed co-curricular opportunities. We aim to ignite a lifelong love of learning and guiding children to grow intellectually and personally and to develop an exemplary character. The faculty is committed to creating an environment that fosters academic, social, and emotional success by providing a respectful and nurturing school.

In Upper Elementary, students further strengthen and build upon the core curricular basics of Critical Thinking, Creativity, Communication, and Collaboration. In all curricular areas, concepts become more complex and detailed as the student’s knowledge and reasoning abilities expand. Teachers integrate many hands on activities, field trips, service learning, and project based learning into the academic program. Experiences are provided that stimulate learning in all developmental areas—physical, social, emotional, and cognitive. Our goal is to create a child-centered environment that fosters positive self-esteem, critical thinking skills and an enthusiasm for learning.
