R School believes that children grow both academically and socially through inquiry-driven, project-based collaborations and useful problem-solving skill development. Our Upper Elementary program is designed to foster the natural curiosity of young children, ages 8-11, while developing the independent-functioning and academic skills necessary for more complex activities.
Students enrolled in our full-time Upper Elementary program will receive 540 hours (MWF 9am-3pm) of core English / Language Arts (ELA), Social Studies (SS), Science, and Math (STEM), plus a minimum of 360 hours (T/Th 8:30am-3:30pm) of various electives throughout the year, including art, music, physical education, gardening, cooking, crafts, engineering, technology, and more, for a total of 900 hours.
Recess and free-play is vital to healthy childhood development. Rather than focusing on "standardized academics," R School students engage in a variety of free-play activities and enjoy a minimum of one hour of recess each day.
Enrolling in our full-time program provides the most complete educational environment, but full-time enrollment may not fit the needs of all students. Therefore, students may also choose from a variety of part-time options, including academics only (MWF), electives only (TR), or a-la-carte enrollment for academics or electives when space is available.
