Elementary Academics (K — 5)
As a kindergarten parent, we have been so extremely blessed to have Mrs. Eaton as our daughter's teacher. She has been so patient and loves our daughter unconditionally. Harper, our daughter, loves going to school and learning about Jesus. With Mrs. Eaton's help, Harper has really blossomed in her reading, penmanship, and her understanding of science and math. She always feels happy and safe in her classroom. The size of the classrooms have played a role in what and how Harper has been able to learn this year as well. Harper is given attention as an individual and her needs are always met.
We are privileged to offer an ACSI-acredited program developed to help your student flourish, with a staff whose heart is ultimately to point your kids to Jesus.
Christ-Centered — At Christian Elementary School, our primary focus is on a Christ-centered education in a safe environment. We have a solid program, proven by years of experience, which allows us to prepare our students for an adventure in our middle school and beyond.
Classroom Models — CES uses a self-contained classroom format for the core subjects in kindergarten through third grade, and the fourth through fifth grade uses a co-teacher and block schedule model to begin preparing for middle school.
Enrichment Classes — Art, music, P.E., computer, library, and band are added throughout the week, which not only provides the students with the exposure to the arts, but also gives them opportunities to find and use their gifts.
Curriculum — Our academic program has been designed around the needs of our students. We use a combination of several resources: ACSI, ABeka, Bob Jones, and Pearson. While our curriculum tends to be advanced, it is our goal as a school to provide an education that meets the needs of different learning styles. Our Academic Learning Lab provides software that provides extra tools for students who need additional assistance.
Standardized Testing — Achievement/standardized tests are given each spring. This data provides the school and family yearly markers of their student’s academic growth.
As an accredited ACSI school, we are able to participate in competitions with other ACSI schools.
Speech Meet — students in grades 1-5 memorize a speech each spring and present it in front of their class for a score. High-scoring students present at our spring Fine Arts Night and can be invited to go to the competition between area ACSI schools. Many of our students consistently place first in the region for their grade and category.
Math Olympics —students grades 3-5 compete in two rounds of timed math assessments in attempts to qualify in the top 20% of our ACSI region. Students who qualify move on to the third and final round competing with other ACSI schools in our region. We are proud that 99% of CES students who compete in round two qualify and go on to the final Math Olympics!
Spelling Bee — students compete in a classroom spelling bee in order to qualify for the area spelling bee with other ACSI schools. This regional competition allows our students the opportunity to compete in order to qualify for a spot in the national competition. In 2019, two of our students traveled to Texas for the national competition!
