As a school dedicated to providing an exceptional elementary education, Tenacre seeks to nurture and challenge students over a broad range of academic subjects. Tenacre’s small group model offers immense educational benefits. The low student-to-teacher ratio allows every student to participate more fully; more participation leads to increased student understanding and confidence; and teachers can differentiate their instruction to meet the group’s needs.
Tenacre is committed to providing students with a strong foundation of skills, especially in math and reading, which are often referred to as the building blocks of an elementary school education. Tenacre creates small, flexible groups for instruction in both disciplines. Many schools have small groups, but Tenacre’s team teaching model, with the addition of the reading or math coordinator, allows a full-time teacher to teach and work closely with each small group. At Tenacre, students grow into joyful learners, ready to take the next step in their lives and education with confidence and purpose.
