Kindergarten to Eighth Grade

Open Window School’s dynamic kindergarten through eighth grade program blends traditional and innovative methods to nurture and inspire bright minds. Designed to promote self-confidence based on strong academic, critical thinking, and problem solving skills, Open Window School’s curriculum reflects the best educational practices in gifted education. In-depth examples of our program are highlighted in the information box on the left side of this page.

Students of all ages benefit from in-depth, hands-on authentic learning experiences that engage their curiosity, cultivate their passions, and support intellectual risk-taking with a supportive peer group.

Teachers are responsible for developing and modifying the curriculum to match the changing individual needs and interests of the children. Teachers at the same grade level work together to ensure that student experiences are consistent. There is a range of skill levels within each class, and teachers provide a nurturing environment designed to allow for challenge and risk-taking at all levels.
 
The school philosophy is applied in small classes with highly skilled teachers that share our students’ love of learning. Social and Emotional Learning is emphasized at all levels, developing our students’ skills in the crucial areas of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making.
Open Window School provides a challenging academic curriculum blended with nurturing support from teachers that prepares students for long-term success.
