Encinitas Country Day School Students are provided a solid academic foundation through individualized language arts and mathematics instruction, and are introduced to the world and their place in it through Montessori hands-on presentations and projects, designed to orient them to their time and place in the universe. This provides a broad foundation for elementary geography, geology, astronomy, history, social studies and science lessons. Encinitas Country Day School’s curriculum is correlated to current California State standards and enriched by hands-on learning in Montessori prepared environments. In addition students are challenged with projects designed to reinforce concepts and apply learned academic skills. A nationally-normed test is administered each spring to provide accountability and document ongoing student improvement.
