Our Approach Grades K-5

All School Morning Meeting Recitation! Check it out! The Responsive Classroom approach is a nationally-used, comprehensive set of highly practical strategies for improving academic performance and social skills in students grades K-6.  It is based on developmental theory and is informed by years of educational experience. The Responsive Classroom approach makes group learning and individual learning possible. It implements active participatory lessons that allow students to construct an understanding of the subject matter and integrate and retain this understanding.  This method brings meaningful change to the ways in which students get ready to learn – changes that allow the brain to make the connections it needs for academic success.

The academic focus that New City School offers is founded in Responsive Classroom principles:

  1. The social curriculum is as important as the academic curriculum.
  2. How children learn is as important as what they learn.
  3. The greatest cognitive growth occurs through social interaction.
  4. There is a particular set of social skills that children need in order to be successful academically and socially.
  5. Knowing the children we teach is as important as knowing the content we teach.
  6. Knowing the parents of the children we teach is as important as knowing the children.
  7. The positive interactions which adults in a school have with the children, their families and each other provides the school model for social excellence.
