Our elementary school (ES) serves children in Early Childhood (age 3) to grade 5 (age 10). TAISM Elementary sees its purpose as being responsible for providing a well-rounded educational experience in a community that is safe and welcoming. We invite you to review the materials available on our website to learn more about who we are and the opportunities available at TAISM.
The Elementary School is organized into two levels:
- Early Childhood: a half-day program for children 3 and 4 years old
- Elementary Program: a full-day program for children in Kindergarten through Grade 5
The TAISM Elementary School experience includes learning opportunities for students in and beyond the classroom. Literacy, mathematics, science and social studies are curricular areas taught in the home classrooms. Students in Kindergarten through fifth grade also receive instruction in the areas of art, media literacy (library),music, physical education, social skills education, technology, and world languages (grades 2-5). Beyond the regular school day, TAISM elementary students have the opportunity to participate in After School Activities. There are three sessions each year which include special interest opportunities for students. Sports, games, literacy clubs, drama, music, are a few examples of the experiences available.
The Elementary School has a well developed curriculum that is essential to the success of all students. With a targeted enrollment of 20 students per teacher, learners are engaged and the process is differentiated for the needs of each child.
The Elementary School Handbook is provided to TAISM students and parents for the purpose of conveying the school’s policies and general procedures. The Handbook is prepared by the school administration after a review of policies approved by TAISM’s Board of Directors, and input from the school’s Professional Staff. Questions regarding the Handbook can be addressed to the school’s Principal or Director.
