Arithmetic is taught with Everyday Mathematics, complemented by the use of manipulatives, games, and strategy exercises. We emphasize both speed and accuracy as we teach basic math skills, but most importantly we guide students to see beyond computation to build logic and problem-solving skills.
Reading, Writing, and History
From creative writing to research reports, Charles Wright emphasizes spelling, vocabulary, and grammar. Students practice handwriting and typing their work. They are exposed to a wide breadth of literature, and independent reading is expected. They are also taught to read expressively out loud.
Science and Research
Information integration and analysis are emphasized in both the humanities and the sciences. Students learn where to find information, how to evaluate it, and how to use it effectively in reports, projects, and presentations.
