Our scholars are on a path toward college and career. We have high expectations for our scholars and offer a high level of support to help children reach their full potential. We individualize learning based on regular analysis of student progress throughout each school year, and our scholars are successful.
These core subjects form the basis of our K-8 curriculum. Scholars receive 120 minutes of instruction in English Language Arts and 90 minutes of instruction in mathematics, science, and social studies each school day.
We help scholars develop vital communication skills, while inspiring a love of literature. Our young scholars learn phonics, grammar, and comprehension skills and prepare for reading through multi-sensory activities. Euclid Preparatory School scholars comprehend and analyze both fiction and non-fiction texts as early as kindergarten. The program emphasizes classic works, writing as a process, and the skills that will be tested when our scholars begin taking the state assessment when they enter third grade.
We balance fundamental skills with critical thinking and problem solving. Our active approach ensures that scholars understand the realities that underlie mathematical concepts. Game and animations bring concepts to life, while challenge problems, regular practice, and review ensure mastery. We build from the concrete to the abstract as scholars move from basic skills toward algebra. Scholars learn by seeing mathematical concepts applied to the world around them.
Our Science program uses hands-on experiments to support the systematic study of life, Earth, and the physical sciences. We nurture curiosity as students practice observation and analytical skills. Scholars learn how our understanding of the world is shaped by ongoing scientific and technological advances. Teachers provide regular opportunities for scholars to participate in experiments and projects that include opportunities to apply mathematics and technology through age appropriate activities.
A truly well-rounded education must nourish the body and soul as well as the mind. We believe in the value of exposing children to the arts as well as to opportunities for exercise and physical competition.
Euclid Preparatory School’s musical program builds musical skills through singing, instrument playing, movement, critical listening and creativity. Music appreciation enriches the primary classroom through discovery and sonic exploration.
Organized physical education gets children exercising regularly. We teach students important concepts of teamwork and sportsmanship, as well as promoting general health and well-being.
