4 Suzuki method for extracurricular activities The Suzuki method of Talent Education developed by Shinichi Suzuki Any skill or “talent” can be developed to a high level by recognizing and taking advantage of natural processes in human development Approach is highly consistent with the developmental approach of Maria Montessori Long history of co-existence, especially for musical instrument instruction Will be used for all activity outside of the work cycle In addition to music and chess taking place during the work cycle 3

22 Infant Program The focus in the Infant Program is to serve as an aid to life. Rather than using the classroom to pacify and restrict the actions of the child, the Montessori environment offers hands-on, real-life experiences to develop the whole child and to maximize the potential of that human life. Our Montessori teachers guide the children through experiences to develop their independence, thought processes and senses. The infants are lead by a highly-trained and certified Montessori teacher and are immersed in the Mandarin and Spanish languages. Music is important in the Infant Program.

25 Primary Program At this stage of life, children possess what Maria Montessori referred to as an “absorbent mind.” The child absorbs information from the environment like a sponge. Our Primary Program is a unique cycle of learning designed to take advantage of the child’s sensitive periods. The classroom is a carefully prepared environment specially modified to allow the young student to be independent, curious, and focused. Our Montessori teachers guide the children through lessons in practical life, sensorial, language, math, culture, and science. The Primary students also receive instruction in Mandarin, Spanish, art, chess, and music by specially trained teachers. Suzuki piano and string instrument instruction is also offered during the school day.

27 Lower Elementary Program At this stage in development, children have a great hunger for knowledge, understanding, and justice. Students at this level yearn to become self-proficient. The student is transitioning from concrete experiences into the world of abstract thinking. The imagination enables the student to make connections across time and space. Lower Elementary students learn how the earth was formed, how plant and animal life are deeply intertwined, and how humans have met their basic needs. A strong emphasis is placed on basic academics as well: reading, writing, grammar, math, and geometry. This age is an important period for both mental and emotional growth. Our Montessori teachers guide students through lessons in individual, small group, and large group settings. The students also receive instruction in Mandarin, Spanish, art, chess, and music during regular academic hours. Suzuki instruction is offered for piano, strings, woodwind, and brass instruments.

29 Upper Elementary Program Students in the Upper Elementary Program practice respect for themselves, others, and for their environment. Children at this age are given lots of freedom and are expected to be self-motivated and extremely responsible. Students engage in a challenging curriculum with respect for their interests, abilities, learning preferences, and personalities. Students have a dedicated teaching team composed of Montessori, Spanish, Mandarin, chess, art, and music instructors to guide them. Suzuki piano, strings, brass, woodwinds instruction is a part of the regular school day.
