Our Language Arts program develops reading, writing, speaking and listening skills through workshops, projects, and instruction. Our teachers inculcate a love of reading and writing by supporting each child’s natural developmental pathway. In our primary grades, we provide additional systematic phonics instruction through the Orton-Gillingham program. As children progress, they develop their ability to analyze both fiction and nonfiction and communicate their thinking in more complex written expression. Students have a variety of opportunities to hone their public speaking, and they participate in many activities to develop their listening and collaborative skills.
