The core curriculum includes language arts in Mandarin, Spanish, and English, math, science, social studies, art, music, and physical education.
Our elementary program’s instructional philosophy and practices emphasize a constructivist, student-centered, and inquiry-based approach that cultivates academic achievement, critical and creative thinking, and character development through disciplinary and interdisciplinary teaching and learning. Students actively engage in structured, in-depth inquiry into unit themes in a trilingual setting. This provides opportunities for students to consider multiple perspectives, make connections, and transfer learning that leads to and reflects a deep understanding of the units.
Frontiers Academy teaches mathematics in Mandarin using the Chinese National Curriculum up to Grade 5. Students perform 1- 2 years above their grade level peers when assessed and matriculated to other schools.
