Rigor in the Elementary 

Within our Elementary School, rigor is about developing critical thinking skills while acquiring academically relevant content knowledge. Rigor leads to students being able to demonstrate perseverance when faced with a challenge or problem and to independently know and advocate for themselves as learners. At the end of a school day in a rigorous environment, children are full of anticipation for tomorrow and inspired to take action to positively impact their learning.

We believe that all children are unique, creative, and capable inquirers who learn through play, exploration, and communication.
