Upper Elementary Program
Grades 3 - 5
Upper elementary students at IMA are encouraged to take ownership of their own learning. From a comprehensive plan for dual language development to perfecting a goal-setting strategy, we give kids the tools they need to become productive, adaptable, confident adults. Classrooms implement a 1-1 device model by 3rd grade, utilizing technology as an extension of learning and promotion of our digital citizenship curriculum.
Curriculum & Standards
IMA delivers a curriculum sequence, Pre-Kindergarten through 5th Grade, that is set against both US. and international learning standards. Goals and benchmarks were designed to prepare children for the subsequent elementary grades as they progress each year.
IMA implements a combination of carefully designed units of inquiry and selective workbooks to prepare children across the various subject strands. Classroom engagements are both teacher-driven and student-led, allowing children to be active participants in their learning.
While curriculum and units tie to specific learning targets, teachers work with students individually to tailor content and maximize individual areas of strength while addressing opportunities for growth.
