The second grade program aims to develop the joy of learning; it is hands-on, interactive, meaningful and fun.  Through learning experiences, students gain a sense of independence, responsibility and respect for one another.  They learn to work in a variety of environments and are encouraged to work together as collaborative, cooperative group members.  

Students are given multiple opportunities to apply their skills and build upon them, making appropriate connections.  The theme-based, integrated curriculum allows students to develop critical thinking skills and become effective communicators within—and beyond--the classroom community.  The inquiry process facilitates learning in all subject areas.
