Elementary Academics

 

Elementary Academics (Grades 1st-4th)

PPA elementary students will spend half of their day in “homeroom” classes receiving both literacy and mathematics instruction in a blended, one to one, technology supported environment.  Performing arts training will be delivered by experts in the fields of dance, music, theater, tumbling and art in specific arts classrooms on a weekly rotation.  Those rotations will also include both science and social studies instruction.   Each elementary academic classroom will have both a teacher and teaching assistant with classes sizes normally at or below 25 students.
