Philosophy

At the heart of the Ross School's educational philosophy is the firm belief that all students can become successful learners and that there are no predetermined limits to what students can accomplish at any age. Ross School teaching methods are informed by the “theory of multiple intelligences” developed by Howard Gardner. Students come to Ross School with varying intelligences, abilities, passions and skills. Curricular units are carefully designed to engage students with a variety of learning styles. A broad range of materials, activities, approaches and interconnected learning opportunities encourages each child to discover and develop his or her own strengths. Students are also taught to recognize those areas where they may need to review in order to master required skills and content. Ross School constantly monitors, analyzes and refines all aspects of teaching and learning. The result is a “living” curriculum that evolves to accommodate teaching methods and topics for all grades.

SPIRALING THE LEARNING ACROSS DISCIPLINES
Cultural history is at the core
