Inquiry and Discovery
For our youngest learners, the world is an entirely new and amazing place. Every experience is an opportunity for learning, and it is best learned when children have the ability to fully engage with it. The ability to ask questions and experiment are crucial. As such, TCIS elementary school learning is very much inquiry- and reflection-based. We take a child's natural curiosity and tendency to play, and we help grow it into a life-long system of learning. Students are presented with concepts and are taught processes for asking questions, engaging with their senses, assessing and connecting what they already know, and then reflecting on what they have experienced.
We take a child's natural curiosity and tendency to play, and we help grow it into a life-long system of learning. In 40 years, these Elementary School lessons should still be some of their greatest assets.
BOOST Elementary Activities
Students at this age engage in our BOOST Activities Program, designed to give children the opportunity to join a wide range of activities every school year. There are options to engage in sports/movement, visual arts, performing arts, culture, academics, and special interests. With activities operating on a rotational trimester basis, students can continually try something new or choose to stay with some activities for a while longer to explore their interest further.
