First grade is a significant year for learning. Students learn to understand the importance of personal responsibility and decision-making both academically and socially. In first grade, students are expected to develop skills to organize themselves, their work, and acquire skills for learning.
First grade teachers at Kolter offer a supportive, caring, and academically challenging environment to enhance the emotional, social, and intellectual growth of students. Teachers work collaboratively and strive for success for all. The classrooms are self-contained, which provides opportunities for cross-curricular instruction, offering enhanced learning throughout the day.
