Kindergarten through Fifth Grade
This 2015 – 2016 school year, ATWCC elementary is extending its academic program to 2nd grade students, which makes ATWCC a Kindergarten through 2nd grade program. The year following the program is expected to offer 3rd grade, then 4th grade, until it reaches its goal of offering 5th grade and becoming a fully accredited TK through 5th grade program.
ATWCCs academic program is full time and offers a curriculum that is aligned with the Common Core Standards. The subjects taught include: language arts, phonemic awareness, sight words, reading, math, social studies, science and math.
While all subjects are taught in a traditional paper and pencil form, ATWCC has also adopted the ‘hands-on’ learning approach. It is ATWCCs believe that the hands-on approach is the most effective teaching method for all age groups.
The hands-on approach allows student to use their senses to learn and process information that enhances a student’s cognitive and social-emotional skills.
