LOWER SCHOOL STUDENT LIFE - A DEEPENING AND BROADENING OF KNOWLEDGE AND FAITH
In Lower School at Prince of Peace Christian, students develop math and literacy skills. Integrated social studies units at each grade level provide opportunities for students to apply basic skills to learn about topics in depth. Students build an understanding of the scientific process as they explore life, environmental and physical sciences.
Students have special study classes in art, music, physical education, computer, Spanish (K-Grade 5) and time set aside weekly to visit our Lower School Library. Our social, emotional, and faith curriculum helps students understand themselves as learners and sets the stage for collaboration, empathy and self-reliance.
The POPCS SmartLab® engages STEM and digital media programs for our lower and middle school. With over 400 STEM learning experiences in more than 60 content areas; the 18 stations of the SmartLab® provides our students a wide selection of hands-on, minds-on projects, exploring a wide range of projects and challenge levels. This applied technology reinforces academics with real world learning while building next-generation skills. Project activities link technology concepts to core academic content in a way that is engaging, relevant, and student-centered. Vertical alignment of the curriculum fosters differentiated learning allowing students to shape and expand learning around their own interests, abilities, and learning styles. Extension activities are available for advanced learners to explore topics in even greater depth.
A small sample of the learning topics include: Circuitry, Computer Graphics, Digital Communications, Mechanics & Structures, Robotics, Scientific Data & Analysis and Sustainability.
