It's not just the numbers
We encourage discussion, creativity and self-expression in math. We give children the tools they need to solve mathematical problems from different perspectives so they understand that there's always more than one way to find an answer.
We adopted the Singapore Math program because it fits so well with our philosophy. Based on highly successful instructional methods developed in Singapore, the program begins with concrete experiences using manipulatives, then moves to pictorial representations and finally to the abstract, ensuring a firm grasp of concepts. This program supports our teachers in focusing on an intuitive approach, with students becoming problem solvers rather than simply gaining a proficiency at following steps.
Math should be fun. With Singapore Math, students become engaged when comparing math strategies with each other and by testing the validity of those strategies. Through our project-based learning, they gain math sense with interactive projects that relate to the everyday world.
