All of our preschool and grade school classes adhere to a school-wide, grade-specific curriculum. From letters, colors, and shapes in our toddler class to reading comprehension, research, and basic geometry in our fifth grade class, our goal at SPS is to give each child the tools they need to continue to excel at the next level while continuing to tailor lessons to allow each child to shine. Each class is center-based, meaning there are different areas of the classroom designated to reading, play, exploration, group work, etc.
Each class has weekly specials including library, music, P.E., Spanish, and art, as well as daily recess on one of our three age-level appropriate, tree-shaded playgrounds. SPS also has a computer lab where our older students learn typing, research, and play class-appropriate learning games.
"Shallowford Presbyterian School offers a challenging, balanced curriculum that encourages exploration and discovery. Our classrooms are student-centered and focused on developing critical thinking skills. Our small class sizes allow our teachers to customize instruction in order to meet the diverse needs of our learners. Every child is unique, which is why SPS believes in nurturing the whole child physically, emotionally, socially, cognitively and spiritually."
