First Grade

By first grade, all children are reading beautifully!  Given the small class size, each child is encouraged to read independently at their own comfort level, then, working with their teacher, their skills are honed and they have the confidence to meet higher challenges.  In their math program, the students are adding and subtracting two and three digits easily.  They continue to work with money, time and graphing as well as solid geometry.  The geography of the  world is introduced early in the school year as students follow Christopher Columbus’ route as he travels to the New World.

What Our Parents are Saying
Tarleton provided the personalized attention that has allowed our daughter to flourish as a student and as an individual.  As a three year old, she was welcomed into a nurturing, fun environment that left with her a sincere love for her school.  Over each of the four years she enjoyed at Tarleton we saw her successfully take on new challenges with the support of committed and caring faculty. She graduated from Tarleton well prepared for her future and most importantly, with a genuine love of learning and the self-confidence needed to excel in her academic career.
