Elementary Curriculum

At Rejoice Christian Schools, our Kindergarten students learn from activities in a stimulating learning environment as they begin their lifelong learning journey. We utilize various teaching methods to ensure we are educating the whole child. Small class sizes provide for frequent interaction between the teacher and student and our emphasis on literacy continues throughout the grades. Our Math curriculum focuses on problem-solving through the use of age-specific tasks and our Science program is taught through hands-on projects and experiments. We also utilize an interactive early childhood education literacy program to encourage young readers in the earliest stages of formal instruction.

At Rejoice, our elementary school includes grades K5 through 5th grade and has a reputation for challenging students to reach their potential. Each student has an opportunity to participate in a broad range of core curriculum classes while fostering spirituality in every aspect of learning. Each student benefits from the low student-teacher ratios giving them the chance to excel in their individual areas of interest.
