“Le tempérament le plus intime d'un peuple, son âme la plus profonde, est avant tout dans sa langue. (The most intimate temper of a people, its deepest soul, is above all in its language).”
Jules Michelet

Elementary

We’re currently accepting applications and pre-registration for the school year (beginning August 3rd).

We’ve designed an Elementary program with the best teachers and curriculum around.  Everything in the classroom is new!  For the 2020-2021 school year, The Quad offers a split class for Kindergarten and 1st grade. Due to COVID-19, there will also be 1 student in the class for 3rd grade.  We are fully licensed for students through the 5th grade.  

The program will offer children instruction in French, Spanish, Chinese, and English.  Unlike most programs that ask families to pick a language track, The Quad strives to make children lifelong learners of all four languages. 

Your child should have at least 1 year of previous exposure in 3 of the languages taught.   Due to space limitations, priority enrollment will be offered to children with language proficiency in Spanish, French, English, and/or Chinese.

The Lead Teacher for this classroom is Chinese. For now, teachers will rotate rooms for language classes.   When COVID-19 is no longer a concern, children will rotate between rooms for lessons.

Children entering Kindergarten need to be 5 years old by August 31st

Children entering 1st grade need to be 6 years old by August 31st

The teachers will be working together to coordinate the curriculum for each class.

Elementary classes will use the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP).  We are currently seeking Candidate Status from the IB and will implement the PYP on a trial basis as we seek eventual authorization.
