The truth of our success really comes from our size. Being small does have its advantages, especially inside the classroom. With small classes, teaching isn’t confined to the written lesson, or the standard objectives of the curriculum. At Saklan, our teachers can easily turn their curriculum on a dime, focusing on exploration and the process of discovery. Student expression and individual development help children become effective, competent, and caring members of society.
At The Saklan School, we believe that best teaching comes from a deep understanding of each student. When the focus is on the student as an individual, the teacher can easily care for the academic, social, and emotional growth starting in the early years and leading into early adolescence.
You’ll find the learning environment at Saklan is challenging, yet we strike the perfect balance between academics and enrichment. Spanish, Music, Art, Physical Education, and Library, all enhance a student’s ability to discover more about themselves and the world around them. Saklan is a place where students are safe to take risks, reach beyond ones comfort zone, and discover true passion. From the first day of school, to the last, students can expect to receive 100% teacher support, understanding, and encouragement.
Classrooms also thrive on collaboration. Simply encouraging students to share their knowledge and learning strategies, treating each other respectfully, and focusing on high levels of understanding, creates an engaging atmosphere for all to benefit. Collaboration helps students listen to diverse opinions, support knowledge claims with evidence, engage in critical and creative thinking, and participate in open and meaningful dialogue.
The Saklan approach IS smaller classes, larger world. We invite you to learn more about us.
