Students and Families First
At Eton, our highly trained teachers in the Lower School, assess and individually teach your child, both academically and socially. Our goal is to make the most academic progress for your child through individual learning and the establishment of strong parent-teacher partnerships.
With a ratio of 10:1, our teachers truly know your child, including how they learn best and how to move them forward at the right pace, without causing stress or anxiety. If a student doesn't master a concept, we re-teach it until they do.
Every Student Can Learn
At Eton Academy, we know every child can learn. We do not assume your child will “grow out of it” or eventually “pick it up”. We explicitly instruct students through brain-based and multi-sensory approaches finding what works for each student, and have the flexibility to adjust when one strategy may not be the best in the moment.
Our explicit instruction doesn’t stop at the classroom, it goes beyond: in the lunchroom, at recess, and throughout each and every moment of their day.
Our Lower School students are taught directly and explicitly, through structure, clear expectations, organizational skills and school management. This instruction lowers anxiety and builds your child’s academic confidence.
Student Placement Based on Individual Needs
The Lower School at Eton Academy is made up of students in grades 1-6. The division is subdivided into two programs: Elementary and Upper Elementary. Students are placed in classrooms and subject area groups based on their strengths, challenges and specific learning needs.
