Academics

Primary School provides an educational journey for children in a nurturing environment full of developmentally appropriate experiences. This is a safe, supportive environment for children to learn and grow. Our strong academic foundation is supported by numerous opportunities for self-expression as children are encouraged to be curious and creative as they learn about oral language, concept building, negotiation, problem solving, and overall character development.

Social, emotional and physical readiness is necessary in order for a child to succeed and be happy at school. Old Trail School's curriculum includes a strong academic foundation supported by an array of opportunities for self-expression through music, art, Spanish, and technology. Children learn together in a variety of settings, not only in their classrooms, but also in the library, science labs, computer labs, gymnasiums and outdoors. Students benefit from many enriching opportunities in the form of service learning projects, speakers, programs, field trips and classroom activities that are directly related to the curriculum.
