Touching hearts and training minds is our goal in our elementary school program. We live out our mission statement of partnering with parents to raise children who impact the world for Jesus Christ. Our elementary students develop a strong foundation of core academic skills and concepts as well as biblical essentials. Our administrators, teachers, and staff members are dedicated to help our students grow academically and spiritually to become the young men and women God created them to be.
Our carefully selected curriculum integrates the Bible in all subjects, and we use textbooks that meet or exceed the California standards at each grade level. Technology is also integrated into core subjects, and our innovative technology lab and computer teacher provide the framework for our classroom teachers that reach beyond the textbook and provide students with real-life learning experiences that include creating brochures and presentations in MS Office and Google Docs, to printing objects on our 3D printer.
Students also have a variety of enrichment courses, which include Computers, Spanish, and P.E., all taught by specialists in those areas. In additional to tracking the number of miles students run in a school year, we also participate in the Presidential Youth Fitness Program. Our reading program utilizes the Accelerated Reader program, and our library includes over 10,000 books to encourage students to read to reach their six week point goals. In addition, we give out annual awards to our students who read at least 1 million words in a school year.
Weekly chapel times include worship led by our student worship band, and relevant messages are shared with students to encourage them develop a Christian worldview and apply the Bible’s truths to their lives. We count it a privilege to share God’s love with our students and their families.
