Elementary Academics

The Ashwood Glen Junior House is your child’s journey from grades 1-6. At Ashwood Glen we aspire to join the global community of the International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools and believe a transdisciplinary framework built around inquiry-based learning is critical for the holistic development of children.

Focusing on the social, emotional and academic growth, the program will offer a differentiated approach that, empowers students to build confidence and take responsibility for their actions thereby creating socially responsible global citizens.

Our students are engaged with a high level of involvement and interaction with peers and the society in which they live. Students exposed to real-world situations hone their skills and abilities to better understand their surroundings and prepare for the challenges that lie ahead. The students adaptable yet focused energy provides them an advantage when facing the real world.

From grades 1 to 6, our students follow a core curriculum comprising of multiple programs and focus areas. Starting with core subjects, their homeroom is their hub for language, social studies, and reading programs. For subjects like French, math, music, art, science and technology, and physical education, students have subject specific teachers who are experts in their respective subject areas and able to deliver the highest quality of education. Exposure to multiple teachers and role model’s fuels student confidence and better prepares them for higher grades.

Our low-class sizes and teacher’s constructionist approach supports differentiated and personalized teaching environment to meet the needs of the individual student.

A strong foundation in mathematics is critical at Ashwood Glen. Implementing Singapore math ensures students not only learn core concepts but also master some of them in an age-appropriate manner. The emphasis is on developing and strengthening foundational math concepts through the three-step learning process: concrete, pictorial and abstract. A firm grasp of core math skills helps our children understand and learn rudimentary financial literacy early on through participation in the knowledge makes sense and financial literacy programs.

As the world around us changes, so must our approach. Equipping our students with the necessary technological and computer skills occurs in our state-of-the-art STEM lab. STEM certified teachers help ignite interest and provide a solid base in core STEM instruction giving our students an edge over traditional academics. Grades 1-3 are introduced to basic keyboarding skills, while grades 4-6 work more frequently with laptops and computers to hone their office capabilities.

Our large indoor gymnasium provides the perfect arena for a host of sports and activities. Other on-site sports include soccer, basketball, and swimming. Weekly swim lessons are offered through our partnership with Back to Basics Swim Academy. Our skating and ice hockey enthusiasts have the opportunity to play in the local sports arena.

A large, well-stocked, multi-lingual library provides a breadth of choices for both academic and pleasure reading. To stimulate a natural environment, the library opens into a vast passage with ambient natural light and foliage.
