Individualized Student Plans
Grades 4 through 8 feature an individualized, anti-biased curriculum rooted in STEM and the Arts with strong foundations in math, reading, writing, language & literacy and science.World Academy’s new campus for our older students is state of the art with an environment designed to support 21st century learning. The in-depth, enriched, diverse curriculum promotes problem solving, collaboration, leadership, communication and other techniques to encourage student success in the global future and is set up to address individualized learning styles and intelligence levels.
The Middle School Program currently resides in our Middle School Annex! The Annex offers our older students in Grades 4 to 8 the opportunity to experience a middle school classroom model. This model includes activities such as Student council, school newspaper, peer mediation, advanced technology experiences, writing workshops, public speaking, cooking, intramural sports and study skill classes that are an integral part of the curriculum experience in Grades 4 through 8. Extracurricular activities also include track, ice-skating, sledding and karate. Our current construction project will expand the existing six-acre campus to include a new state-of-the-art Middle School building, Gymnasium/Theater Complex and full-size soccer field.
The academically challenging and developmentally appropriate approach to our curriculum is seamlessly coordinated from grade to grade in order to maximize each child's potential. Our high academic standards and low student/teacher ratio enables each student to have more opportunities to think and grow, and more hands on comprehensive information about the world. Our curriculum is further enriched with specialized instruction in Technology, World Languages, Art, Music, Chorus and Physical Education and focuses elective courses for each grade.
Grades 4 through Grade 8 at World Elementary offer a low student to teacher ratio with a maximum class size of 18 students. Classes are conducted five days a week from 8:30am - 3:00pm with the option to extend the day with our Before and After School Program. Based on the local Board of Education guideline, our curriculum has been expanded and enriched to offer your child more choices. Our goals are to foster physical, social, emotional, cognitive, language, math and creative development - all while enjoying school.
