2-Year-Old Program

 

The 2-Year-Old Program is designed to expose the child to his/her first group/social experience with other 2-year-old children. The student will participate in a variety of activities that focus on the development of the physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and moral aspect of the child.

Program: This program is designed to achieve the units through learning centers, small group activities, and large group activities involving hands-on activities, which are developmentally age appropriate.
 
Learning Centers: Learning Centers are well-defined areas in the classroom that promote independence, foster decision-making, and encourage involvement. These centers are designed to provide opportunities for active and quiet play as well as to encourage social skill development. These centers/activity areas are: house, block, art, Library, sand/water, outdoors, and puzzles (manipulative). Other centers may be added throughout the school year based on the units and children’s interest. See the curriculum appendix for ideas for each center and materials that may be included.
 
Small Group Activities: Small Group activities are specific activities in each unit that are best done in a small group environment (i.e. scissor skills). This allows for more student participation. Small group activities can take place at a table, on the floor, in the gym, or outside. The teacher can be flexible in deciding what would best fit the essential units being taught.
 
Large Group Activities: Large Group activities can include circle time, whole class singing and dancing, story time, and lunchtime.

Advanced Placement (AP)

Are you ready for a unique learning experience that will help you succeed in college? Through AP’s college-level courses and exams, you can earn college credit and advanced placement, stand out in the admission process, and learn from some of the most skilled, dedicated, and inspiring teachers in the world.

 

A Different Kind of Class

From the moment you enter an AP classroom, you’ll notice the difference—in the teacher’s approach to the subject, in the attitude of your classmates, in the way you start to think. In AP classrooms, the focus is not on memorizing facts and figures. Instead you’ll engage in intense discussions, solve problems collaboratively, and learn to write clearly and persuasively.

Prepare to Succeed in College
AP courses can help you acquire the skills and habits you’ll need to be successful in college. You’ll improve your writing skills, sharpen your problem-solving abilities, and develop time management skills, discipline, and study habits.

Earn College Credit and Placement
Most four-year colleges in the United States and colleges in more than 60 other countries give students credit, advanced placement or both on the basis of AP Exam scores. By entering college with AP credits, you’ll have the time to move into upper level courses, pursue a double-major or study abroad.

How Do I Enroll?
Once you've decided to take the AP challenge it’s easy to enroll. Talk to an AP teacher or the AP Coordinator at your school about the course you want to take. Discuss the course’s workload and any preparation you might need.

 

AP INTERNATIONAL DIPLOMA

(adopted fromhttp://www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/ap/exgrd_intl.html)

The Advanced Placement International Diploma (APID) is a globally recognized certificate for students with an international outlook. The APID challenges a student to display exceptional achievement on AP Exams across several disciplines.

Universities worldwide utilize the APID in admissions. Students may search AP International
Recognition for universities outside the U.S. that acknowledge AP achievement.

The APID is available to students attending secondary schools outside the United States and to U.S. resident students applying to universities outside the country. The APID is not a substitute for a high school diploma, but rather provides additional certification of outstanding academic excellence.

To earn an APID, a student attending school within the United States must indicate on at least one AP Exam answer sheet that the results should be sent to a university outside the United States. Please see AP International Recognition for a list of universities outside the U.S. that use AP in admissions.
