The Multi-age Classroom
The foundation of Yosemite Wawona Elementary Charter School's academic program is set in a multi-age classroom environment. The program is primarily a hands-on, project-based curriculum, where students learn cooperatively and collaboratively. The program includes integrated content across subject areas, which is academically challenging and aligned with the California Content standards.
Benefits of Multi-age Learning
When there are children from many grade levels with such a range of strengths and talents, no child stands out as being different because every child is different! Learning styles are honored and instructional practices are personalized to meet each child’s individual needs. Each child is nurtured in his or her strengths.
