Why We’re Different at Island Prep Elementary School
At Island Prep Elementary School we strive to achieve what parents and we, the school, want for our students, our educational values align with our families’ values. Our educational approach through experience and hands on learning versus rote memorization allows the students to challenge themselves as scientists, mathematicians and linguists, examining all possibilities before coming to their own conclusions. This method of learning fuels a passion for knowledge, a drive to succeed and a compulsion for working together which establishes a feeling of responsibility for their classroom community and their own education. With smaller class sizes, educational enrichment programs and an emphasis on physical activity we are able to ensure the students are getting the best of what we have to offer.
By incorporating one on one teaching with small group lessons, learning tailored to the individual student, and knowledge of what the students need to be successful in their own education, we hope our students leave our elementary school with the ability and desire to thrive in all of their educational endeavors. We want our students to find excitement in knowing they have the power, competence and confidence to learn at their own pace and in their own way.
