The Elementary Curriculum (Grades 1-6) at VIPS concentrates on several interconnected aims:
To cultivate and build on the love of learning that exists in all our children at the beginning of life.
To deepen children’s understanding and appreciation of the amazing world that lies before them.
To instill good habits of mind in our children`To help children develop the skills necessary for the next stages in their learning experiences.
We continue the theme of an integrated curriculum with Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) subjects playing a crucial role in Grades 1-6.
These integrated activities align comfortably with the US Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for the Mathematics framework and the English Language and Arts (ELA) framework.
