Redd School Elementary

Elementary Picture

Empowering Students to Joyfully Learn and Grow

At the Redd School, we have built an elementary school program that provides opportunity for development of self-esteem, social competence and intellectual growth. We prepare a success-oriented learning package, challenging each student to work at their highest instructional level.

Our goal for elementary education is to prepare students for middle school by building solid foundations in every subject. Working in small classes with the guidance and personal attention of dedicated instructors, the Redd School’s elementary school students begin to acquire study habits that will serve them all their lives.

The Program

Accelerated Academics in a Small-Group Environment

Our elementary school students are engaged in an investigative style of learning. Guided in part by their own interests, they learn to meet high standards and demonstrate proficiency in their studies. They are encouraged to stretch themselves and take intellectual risks, knowing they will be supported by teachers and friends in a positive learning environment.

As the students grow and mature, the Redd School program allows for accelerated academic demands within a nurturing, small group environment. Our elementary school students are increasingly challenged to explore connections within and among the disciplines. They leave our program confident and eager to continue to learn, make connections and make a contribution.

The Classroom

Confident, Unique, Self-Directed Learners

The Redd School elementary curriculum maintains the standard set forth by the Texas state-mandated curricula by grade level. The Redd School difference that will benefit your child is in the way we teach. We are not bound by grade level, and we maintain small class sizes throughout. This flexibility affords us the ability to take each child from where they are, to as far as they can go.

We value character development, community service, integrity, creativity and place the utmost importance on being enthusiastic about lifelong learning. We integrate these values throughout the interdisciplinary subject areas in our curriculum wherever possible in order to make learning meaningful and impactful for our students.

    Language Arts

Reading is the motivating factor in a Redd School education. It opens doors to new ideas, the world of literature and information research. Students are given the opportunity to learn in the modalities that are easiest and most effective for them. Grammar, spelling, writing and vocabulary are integral parts of the Language Arts program. A love for words in all forms is instilled in a variety of ways. A Redd School student will be a writer, a reader and a thinker.

    Mathematics

Using a well-balanced and innovative curriculum, students are involved in critical thinking/problem solving activities that will develop the conceptual background and skill-building necessary for solid number sense and pre-algebraic reasoning concepts. Students use concrete objects and models to interpret abstract concepts within the context of practical applications. This process assures that students develop true concept understanding rather than rote memorization of facts.

    Science

Science at the Redd School is an adventure that embraces the concept of active participation in meaningful experiences. We nurture an exploratory attitude to inspire students to take on challenges. Students develop ownership in the process as they organize their thinking into plans for investigating questions. We engage students in hands-on activities, critical thinking and problem solving strategies that lead them to discovery, with real-life applications. Integrating Science across the curriculum demonstrates that Science is part of our everyday life instead of a standalone subject.

    Social Studies

Students learn about the world starting with their own home and neighborhood, their city, their state, and their nation working towards building understanding on a multi-cultural and international level. Students are exposed to history, culture, government, geography, and current events while locating themselves in the diverse, dynamic world they live in.

    Spanish

Students are introduced to conversational Spanish and work from basic vocabulary through sentence structure and on to conjugation and reading.

    Art, Drama and Music

At the Redd School we believe that exposure to both the fine and performing arts is an important component in any well-rounded education. Teachers expose the students to many aspects of fine arts using a vast variety of media and subjects. The results of these projects are impressive and are showcased at the Redd School during the year. Throughout the school year, performance groups stage their talents at Redd School and often students attend theatre and dance productions.

    Physical Education

At Redd School, each student participates in physical education in order to build good exercise habits for a healthy future and an active lifestyle. The students are exposed to a wide variety of sports and games designed to provide aerobic activity and enhance coordination and physical development. Students are also exposed to the principles of proper nutrition.

After completing the Redd School elementary curriculum students are not only prepared for Middle School, they are also more prepared for a diverse and rapidly changing world.
