Elementary, 1st – 4th Grade
Our goal at The Anchored School is to continue to emphasize your child’s desire to learn by fostering an environment in which your child is empowered to learn and think independently using a project based learning approach. Project Based Learning (PBL) is a learner led, research driven methodology to learning that incorporates a “GUIDED” approach versus the traditional teacher led instruction.
For many parents, the next steps beyond early childhood education includes having to decide which method of learning best suits their child. While some believe that traditional school is a part of their child’s journey, we at The Anchored School believe that every learner deserves the opportunity to grow and develop as an individual without the limitations and rigidity that traditional schools require. Project Based Learning removes the limitations while avoiding the rigidity by incorporating research driven classes that are designed to encourage your child to explore and think beyond what they see. We believe that Project Based Learning is truly next level learning that will give your child the confidence to express their thoughts without the fear of being wrong, criticized, or judged. Project Based Learning eliminates large group anxieties by fostering an environment that nourishes the mind of a child through cooperative learning. A learner led environment is more meaningful because learners are encouraged to take ownership of their learning, and to think independently. Additionally, children will be empowered to take responsibility for their choices, schedules, and peer relationships. They are accountable for their daily learning without being forced into routines. Our goal is to enable our learners to find their purpose, identify their strengths and passions which will help them reach their maximum potential as contributors to our society.

Our project based learning program is an integrated environment which encourages learners’ interaction throughout the day. Children will not have specific time limits for each subject. They will progress through the program at their own pace which will be based on their abilities and strengths. To truly immerse children into study units, they will engage in school field trips to which parents are welcomed and encouraged to attend. You should consider this program for your child if you are a parent wishing to expose your child to a lifelong learning experience that fosters a love of learning, free thinking, and self-confidence.
Our desire to educate learners involves working with families by maintaining very reasonable tuition rates. A commitment to educate our children should not be a financial burden for anyone.
Space for this program will be limited as class sizes will be small in order to facilitate positive interaction amongst our learners.
