Our Approach

The Wesley School is an inclusive and welcoming school
where the whole child is valued, relationships cultivated,
and diversity is recognized and respected. 

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is that every child is born with the desire and capacity to learn, but not every child is hard-wired to learn by the same method. The Wesley School believes in the transformative growth that results from a classroom community that celebrates multiple learning styles and teaches how to communicate across our differences. We are all different but we learn from each other.

Seeking to "do all the good you can" is the core value of our school that translates into understanding, respect, social responsibility, honesty, and kindness.

Our Curriculum

Our curriculum draws its inspiration from  the emergent model of education and the Project Approach, a teaching technique developed by leading educators Lilian Katz and Sylvia Chard. The daily schedule encourages collaborative learning, self-initiated discoveries, hands-on learning, creative & critical thinking as well as imaginative play. By working with the unique learning profile of each student, we can better understand each child’s pattern of development to ensure they master the knowledge and improve their grade level skills.

Our curriculum includes instruction in the areas of Literacy, Math, Social Studies, and Science as well as art, music and physical education.

Humans are not meant to live in isolation, so for us at the Wesley School, learning to be "in community" means students will learn best when they understand themselves as part of a caring community shaped by grace.
 

We are an inclusive and welcoming school where individuals are valued, relationships cherished, and where neuro-diversity is recognized and respected . Our creative educational approach brings together mind and heart, intellect and passion, work and play, worship and prayer.
