1st & 2nd grade students thrive in SRV’s child-centered classrooms with small group instruction and individual attention from their teachers. Teachers know their students deeply and are in a position to challenge and support them appropriately. Primary Circle students flourish as mathematicians, readers, writers, builders, athletes, artists, scientists, and musicians. As progressive educators, SRV teachers provide a framework and context for students’ work. Students regularly pursue their own interests in collaboration with their peers with guidance from their teachers. Indoor and outdoor play and exploration and the strong social/emotional curriculum remain features of SRV’s Primary Circle Curriculum.
The school day is from 8:15am-3pm. Students may be dropped off as early as 7:30am and will be supervised by SRV staff members. The Afternoons Program runs from 3pm-6pm. Lunch is provided for all students. Snacks are provided by the School each morning, in the afternoon, and during the Afternoons Program.
