The elementary level encompasses grades one through five and is committed to providing a strong academic curriculum while encouraging each student's overall development. Students are taught in both self-contained and departmentalized classrooms. Christ-Mar School’s small classes help create an environment in which our dedicated teachers can actively encourage each student to achieve his or her full academic potential, explore creative abilities, develop physical talents, and become a productive and responsible individual.
As we challenge our students, the faculty and administration actively support them to meet those challenges. Students learn in a wide variety of settings through the use of diverse tools and methods.
Our challenging language arts curriculum provides students with an understanding of the mechanics and intricacies of the English language with an emphasis on reading, writing, spelling, speaking, and listening skills. Our traditional phonics-based approach to reading successfully prepares Christ-Mar School students to use their writing and verbal skills effectively.
