At every grade level and in every academic area, students are taught by experienced, highly-skilled, and dedicated teachers who are masters of their craft. Proficiency in reading and mathematics is critical to academic success; the School places specific emphasis on the acquisition of skills in these subject areas. Mathematics, language arts, and social studies are taught by homeroom teachers. Beginning in junior kindergarten, specialists provide instruction in science, foreign language (French or Spanish), art, music, drama, and physical education. Technology education and computer technology are introduced in grade one.
