Welcome by the ES Principal
ISM Elementary School's central goal is to provide a well-rounded program that encourages the academic, social, physical, cultural aesthetics and emotional development of each child. The elementary school offers a North American/International
Curriculum, which includes an early childhood through grade five educational program, focusing on the main subjects of language arts, mathematics, social studies and science. To develop a well-balanced program, the elementary program also includes art, computer/technology, library, physical education, music, and Myanmar language and culture.
The preschool and pre-Kindergarten program focuses on the early development in the following areas: physical, social, emotional, and cognitive and language skills development. There is a strong emphasis on language development as many of our preschoolers come to us with limited English skills.
Our highly qualified teachers come from around the world, and the student population is comprised of various nationalities and backgrounds, with Myanmar accounting for almost two-thirds of the student body. Elementary students learn to express themselves, to be attentive listeners, to understand what they read, to respect the environment and to be responsible citizens in our ever-changing world.
Parental support and involvement is pertinent to our elementary program. The school seeks parent involvement in the education of their children through continuous communication and participation in school activities. Two parent-teacher conferences are built into the academic calendar to provide parents and teachers the opportunity to communicate collaboratively. Started in 2004, our Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) helps to contribute to our school improvement and events.
In addition to our comprehensive academic program, the elementary school offers a variety of events and after school activities to help further develop students' extra-curricular skills and interests.
