K – Grade 4

State House Visit with Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito

The Sage School’s academic program is rich with advanced content that fosters critical thinking and problem solving through in-depth study. True to our mission and educational philosophy, we provide even our youngest students ample opportunities to make connections across the disciplines. Learning is often enriched through interactions with professionals (scientists, engineers, authors, and artists) in the form of guest speakers, field studies, and field trips. Starting at a young age, students also participate in community civic engagement, such as creating food bags for our local shelter or baking treats for nearby animal shelters. By the end of fourth grade, students are more confident, eloquent learners with a heightened understanding of a multitude of different concepts and ideas.

Beginning in Grade 2, students are engaged in a long-term project under an umbrella topic such as sustainability, and work either as individuals or in team to solve a global problem through the scientific, engineering, and design processes. Students build their solutions in the science lab, arts studio or Makerspace, and present these innovative solutions to parents and professionals within our community.

The curriculum for Kindergarten through Grade 4 includes humanities (English language arts and social studies), math, science, Spanish, integrated arts (creative movement, art, music), physical and health education, and library. Learning takes place in a warm and nurturing classroom environment, either as a whole class or in small and flexible groupings, and often with more than one teacher in the classroom.
