Elementary

Elementary is the foundation for future learning....

"By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it.  But each one should build with care. I Cor. 3:10

 

Upton Lake Christian School recognizes that children need a nurturing environment, as well as structure and discipline in training their minds, hearts and bodies.  A biblically integrated instructional program has been carefully developed which lays the building blocks for each age and grade level.  Teaching in Bible and scripture memory is introduced so that God's Word can transform each heart, as it is God's greatest desire to reach each divinely created child.  Much emphasis is given to essential knowledge and skills in reading, thinking and mathematics which form the basis of future learning.  Learning is active and incorporates a variety of approches that will reach all learning styles.  Attention is given to the national standards in evaluating instructional materials. Assessments are appropriate for each unit of instruction and each year a nationally scored test is administered to gauge the effectiveness of our curriculum.  Teachers are committed and mature Christian people who are dedicated lifetime learners and students of God's Word.  Since parents are a child's most important teachers, we prayerfully partner witih you in the process.  We welcome parent involvement!
