From learning the letter A to preparing for adolescence, elementary students at Lakeland Christian School benefit from a variety of educational activities as they learn the foundations that will prepare them for the future.
Our students learn the basics of math and language arts, as well as science, Bible, computers, art, Spanish, music, physical education, and library skills. These subject areas provide students with a well-rounded education designed to promote the essential components of child development.
Students in the Elementary School are taught in self-contained classrooms, while team teaching is utilized in grades four and five. Bible is a core subject in grades K4 through 5th grade. Elementary students attend chapel every Tuesday, and daily Bible lessons are taught in the classroom. Students participate in the Foundations and Framework reading program, an extensive instructional reading program that uses literature to develop skills in critical thinking, problem solving, and written expression. The Kindergarten through second grade teachers utilize Saxon Phonics with grammar and creative writing. The math curriculum supports mastery of math skills, understanding of concepts, and integration of problem solving. Social studies and inquiry-based science are the other academic subjects. Classes in art, music, physical education, Spanish, and library skills are also essential components of child development. Students are tested annually using the TerraNova Achievement Test. Students with mild learning disabilities are assisted by certified teachers in the Special Programs Department.
