Academics - Upper Elementary
At the Kings Christian students are taught mastery of basic concepts and skills that lead to High School success within the context of a Christ-centered education. Students do more than learn facts from textbooks; they learn to respect and enjoy knowledge and to be humble and wise in their pursuit of it. Students learn by example to stand for truth. Parents can have confidence that their child is being prepared for future academic success. Our faculty will strive to make sure every student is doing their best and reaching their full potential.
How is this achieved? There are four factors that contribute to Kings Christian School overall success. First is the quality of the teachers who are committed to each child’s academic and spiritual development. Their success is linked to your child’s success. Second is the culture of the student body where learning and working hard are encouraged. Expectations are high and students rise to them. Third is a carefully designed curriculum that links instruction across the grades and avoids gaps in sequence. Fourth are parents who are committed to the fact that learning is demanding and that academic success has no short cuts.
As a transitional period in which students begin to assume more personal responsibility for their time and education, the Upper Elementary program at Kings Christian prepares students for the rigorous but rewarding academic experience of the High School.
