Children have an amazing capacity to learn when they are between the ages of 6 and 12. In our classrooms, students may excel at different rates and progress at their own pace. In a traditional Elementary School environment, students who advance faster than others may be bored as lessons progress, while other students might not fully grasp the material before the next subject is introduced. With Starwood School’s Elementary Program, students are on their own paths for learning with self-paced lessons guided by Montessori-certified instructors who are familiar with each student’s strengths and weaknesses.
Individualized Learning Paths
By the time students reach the Lower Elementary Program at Starwood Schools, they have been encouraged to work independently in the classroom and take responsibility for their learning. Teachers track each student’s progress while guiding them through individually tailored academic plans. This empowers students to take charge of their growth and development, both socially and academically. Yet, there are also group lessons that continue to polish students’ social skills and inspire teamwork in the classroom.
In order to promote the use of technology, each Elementary classroom is equipped with an interactive SMART Board. The SMART Board helps teachers facilitate group learning and highlight important information. There are also computers in every classroom, which students may use for internet research, cultural exchange, and familiarizing themselves with technology. To further their technological education, Elementary students also take supplementary technology courses
Challenging, Self-Paced Curriculum
The curriculum in Starwood School’s Elementary classroom may be self-paced but it continues to challenge students and teaches them to think creatively. In every subject, students may self-correct and work at their own pace for sequential lessons in each academic area. This promotes self-reliance and a love for learning that can last for a lifetime.
