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 .
2nd - 3rd grades
Children who are enrolled in our 2nd - 3rd grade classes are natured and guided as begin to master their foundations of English language arts and the basic mathematical operation. Key introductory terms and concepts with-in Social studies and Science will will be expanded on and their route to develops a comprehensive understanding to set-forth. In addition to the scholastic goals, children who are enrolled n these grade will have a strong focus character development and behavioral mastery. Lastly children with these grades are taught organizational skills and are expected to learn how maintain their portfolio by themselves.
4th - 5th grades
The ultimate goal for all children enrolled in our 4th - 5th grade class is the mastery of the foundations in English language arts and the basic mathematical operation. Children who have been enrolled in our program since kindergarten would be expected to know beyond the basics of social studies, Science. Another of our goals with children in these grades is to develop their abilities in STEM, including but not limited to recognizing tools, understanding safety measures, drawing in 3 dimensions and taking exact measurements.
6th - 7th grades
Children in our fifth -sixth grades class are keenly guided as they develop through their adolescence. Charter refinement, self-discipline, respect for mastery, attentiveness to detail, the honing in on their comprehension and analytical skills, self-expression are some of the primary goals we have with student in these grade levels. Stepping beyond the scope a basic elementary understanding of English language arts and the mathematical operation, children in these grade level will have a focus on writing and developing their algebraic foundations. In addition children in these grades will be able recognize tools, understand safety measures, draw in 3 dimensions and take exact measurements.
9th - 10th grades
The ultimate goal for all children enrolled in our 9th - 10th grade class is college and/or higher learning readiness. The foundations in English language arts and the basic mathematical operation. Children who have been enrolled in our program since kindergarten would be expected to know beyond the basics of social studies, Science. In addition children in these grades will be able recognize tools, understand safety measures, draw in 3 dimensions and take exact measurements.
pre college 11 - 12th grades
Students enrolled in our 10th - 12th grade class are in many ways are our top priority. The emphasis we put on our hight level students stems from our need to make sure they are ready to enter the world. College and/or higher learning readiness are amongst our top goals however career preparation, professional etiquette, consumer rights, financial literacy and leadership skills are just as important. In terms of curriculum, students in this grade will be guided into collegiate levels of acumen within English language arts, and in mathematics. Students would be expected to know beyond the basics of social studies and Science. In addition children in these grades will be able describe tools, understand safety measures, draw in 3 dimension, have a basic knowledge of refine tooling and take exact measurements.
