What makes us unique?

Social Emotional

We believe that good learning happens when children feel confident and are aware of their interests, strengths, and weaknesses. Our robust social emotional curriculum will empower our students to advocate for themselves and others, especially during their group projects and experiments.

Inquiry-Based Learning

We believe students learn best when they are focused on solving a problem or exploring a wonder. Our academic program is designed to equip students with the fundamental reading, writing, math, science, and humanities skills they need to engage with relevant everyday problems and questions.

Small Group Learning

We believe students learn best when they receive instruction tailored their specific needs and learning style. At Elm, our schedule allows for 2-3 hours of small group learning. Students will receive daily instruction in small groups of 6-8 students based on their specific needs.

Creative Courses

We believe good learning happens when children can explore a topic in multiple ways. Starting in Kindergarten we will offer Fine Arts, Vocal Music, Spanish, Media Lab, and Shop class!
