The Elementary School is where our students become independent learners.
At St. Demetrios we believe that our students can best acquire a rich body of knowledge and the skills needed for future learning through a curriculum that is developmentally appropriate and builds itself year by year. It is our expectation that our curriculum “Ethos” is an express of St. Demetrios mission, which is to inspire a love of learning, build self – confidence, and importantly to foster in our students the ability and desire to contribute to their community and Hellenic community.
We realize that the first years of a child’s academic life are crucial ones in establishing positive attitudes and dispositions toward learning. We strive to build upon our students’ curiosity, while instilling in them a spirit of cooperation, a respect for others and for their ideas, and a satisfaction in personal intellectual growth.
Classroom instruction is complemented by weekly participation in a variety of special subject areas. These include computer, music, art, Greek language, dance, religion, and physical education & fitness.
Our curriculum is the result of ongoing dialogues among faculty and administration. As such, it reflects our respect for St. Demetrios rich academic and cultural heritage, and our involvement with current educational practices and philosophical thought. It is a document that will continue to enhance.
