Grades 1-5: A Balanced Curriculum

In Grades 1-5, students continue the Responsive Classroom opening activity but spend the bulk of their day immersed in a rigorous, balanced curriculum. The curriculum includes a language and literacy program that builds reading proficiency and fosters a love of literature; writing in a workshop-style approach; mathematics using Singapore Math; STEAM, an integrated, cross- discipline approach linking science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics; social studies; Spanish; instrumental and choral music; visual art; and physical education.
One way learning comes to life at Renbrook is through multi-faceted units of study that enable students to see and experience connections among disciplines. Renbrook’s lower school clubs program offers a wide array of before and after school activities like running, and chess that support and/or augment the daily curriculum.
