K-4 Grade Program
All May School teachers earn certification in multi-sensory language therapy through Shelton School of Dallas, the largest school for students with learning differences in the world, as well as have extensive training in the research-based methods that work best for diverse learners. Our 6:1 student/teacher ratio ensures that our students maximize how they learn best with focused, individualized instruction.
Our Elementary School Program for grades 1-4 is located at the St. John's Methodist campus. Classrooms are Montessori-based, allowing for individualization and hands-on, multi-sensory learning while building executive functioning skills. In addition, all students participate in daily language therapy classes focused on individualized support in certified Orton-Gillingham based reading and writing curriculum.
The Elementary classrooms address the following areas of learning:
- Practical Life
- Social Emotional
- Oral Language
- Bodily Movement
Elementary students have the opportunity for arts-integration across the curriculum as a way to develop the ability to see things from multiple perspectives and executive functioning skills while engaging in creative, problem-solving projects. Societies are a time when students learn social studies and science content through the immersive experience of role-play. All Elementary school students also have the opportunity to participate in a creative movement class in partnership with National Dance Institute, New Mexico, a Mindful Movement Physical Education class, a visual arts class, social skills instruction, and mindfulness.
