Special Programs/Features We believe that students learn best when the materials they study are intellectually captivating--not a hodge-podge of unrelated units but rather a coherent set of related literary, historical and cultural materials. To that end, much of our curriculum is devoted to thematic teaching and learning. The theme is not a unit of study but rather a vehicle which synthesizes and consolidates children's learning. Our program includes specialists for world language, science, library, art, music, physical education, interscholastic sports and an extended day program.
