A Commitment to Excellence         

Our aim is to provide learning in a range of classes to prepare learners with a successful educational experience.  As much as focusing on topic learning, we aim to develop key learning skills throughout primary school years 1, 2 and 3, so students can initiate their own learning schedule as they grow to understand their individual strengths and develop critical thinking skills.  Two afternoons a week there are ‘choice options’ where students choose what they do such as Japanese, yoga, drama, have extra tutoring in a subject, or just socialize, play games, cook cakes etc.   The day always ends with fifteen minutes of ‘useful work’ where the whole school participates in tidying and cleaning up.  This fosters ownership and care for the school and helps to ensures our Commitment to Excellence.

Each child experiences learning differently

At the very heart of our model of learning is the child, each unique and each with different needs.  Learning is a quite different experience for each child – even within the same classroom, and more fundamentally, for some, conventional classroom-based study doesn’t suit them at all, and they need a different and tailored timetable.  Because of our small class sizes and high staff to student ratio we can respond to your child’s individual learning style and needs.  Every staff member will get to know your child well and appreciate their strengths and areas of challenge.

Science and Math Focused Learning

Math and Science programs are geared towards the purpose of better preparing students to excel in college as well as math and science careers.

Our students develop an understanding and appreciation of science, and math by participating in hands-on and project-based learning.

Students learning through a project-based curriculum will develop the ability to transfer their learning to new situations, demonstrate an increased ability to define problems and support their reasoning. UCLI learners are better able to tackle conceptual problems than those taught with a more traditional curriculum.
