Our Grade levels
The XyayX Institute is employs the use of Zone proximal development (Multiage classrooms) teaching strategies. Multiage classrooms are made up of a mix of abilities and ages. Students are not grouped based solely on academic performance.
benefits from a multiage experience
Research strongly suggests that children benefit in many ways from multiage classrooms (Miller 1990). Academically, children usually do better in multiage classrooms that in traditional classrooms (Anderson & Pavan, 1993). If they don’t do better, then they do the same. Multiage classrooms clearly do not negatively affect academic achievement (Miller, 1990). After reviewing twenty-one quantitative studies comparing the effects of multiage classrooms with single grade classrooms, Miller (1990, 6) notes, “In terms of academic achievement, the data clearly support the multigrade classroom as a viable and equally effective organizational alternative to single-grade instruction.”
kindergarten- 1st grades
Our kindergarten to first grades our youngest class, which to many encompass the most important years in education. It is during these years that a child's understanding of the world is developed and foundations of all primary subjects are introduced. Our ultimate goal is to provide an education that inspires curiosity and exploration while developing their pillars academic understanding .
