The Joule School is a fun way to get a great foundation in core subjects without using worksheets! We attach "dinosaur feet" to our shoes and create prints in the mud, then pour, press, and erode sediment to explore the way that geologic processes create fossils in Science. We sing songs written especially for the school to learn about phonemes and digraphs, and shape our letters in salt and clay during Reading. Best of all, we dress up and go outside to role-play as hunters and gatherers, Viking explorers, or Aztec priests in History.
We follow the Montessori Method in the early grades, with an emphasis on developing independence, responsibility, and a love of learning. Students have the opportunity to study a wide variety of extracurricular subjects, including gardening, cooking, and foreign language, in addition to time for play and student-led exploration.
Joule also offers an Early Readers program for students aged 3-5 who need acceleration in language arts!
The Joule School admits students ages 3-6 for our primary classes. All primary classes take place Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 3:30 PM. The daily schedule includes 4 academic classes, a Montessori work block, and 3 recess periods.
Admissions opportunities change periodically depending on the composition of existing classes. The application process begins with a 30 minute phone interview, after which your child may be invited for a school visit.
