Class Descriptions
The Spanish lessons and engaging activities help students learn the alphabet, vocabulary, numbers, common phrases, and more. Students also learn how to ask questions and discuss topics such as the weather. In line with the Scholaris approach, the class moves through the content at the student's pace, working toward mastery and enjoyment.

Students work on keyboarding proficiency with teacher instruction and goal setting. Once a student is able to type independently using appropriate form, speed, and accuracy, they then begin working on Microsoft Office, including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

Expanding on what they have learned in class, teachers guide students to dig deeper into their writing skills and foster their ability to build add more description, clarity, and excitement to their stories. Students will conference with the teacher to improve their writing and expand on their ideas.

Using many great works of art as examples, students explore line, shape, color, value, texture, form, and space to create their own art. Students are encouraged to experiment with a variety of materials while learning professional techniques to express their creativity while having fun.

While students have labs built into their science class, Monday science Lab is focused on fun experiments to reinforce curiosity and understanding of the natural world.

Students learn how to use a variety of tools and work with different materials in order to explore, create new things, and improve things that already exist. Students either work with partners or individually to solve problems and create new structures.

Students start by learning the principles of a free-market economy including: needs and wants, why we act, trade increases wealth, scarcity and value, what creates value, and what is an entrepreneur. Students also work on learning how to plan, design, and budget a small business of their own.
