Elementary School Music students celebrate their Apple Unit by inviting their friends, fellow students, teachers, and parents to this concert. The audience also gets the chance to discover, together with the students performing, how a song is like an apple, and an apple is like a song!
Welcome to Elementary School
Our elementary students in Grades 1 through 5 benefit from a holistic education where there is a great emphasis on differentiating the curriculum to meet the individual needs of our students. Our program stems from an inquiry-based approach where children learn to ask and answer important questions about themselves and their learning.
At AAS Moscow, holistic education means teaching the whole child. We define holistic learning as academic, social, emotional, and ethical learning.
We take an inquiry based approach to learning. Children are encouraged to ask questions, investigate, tinker, and find answers which makes their learning journey experiential in nature.
Children are encouraged to take risks and failures are seen as opportunities to grow, learn, and become more resilient as learners.
Students develop a competent toolkit of social and emotional skills through group work, playtime, guidance lessons with our counselor, conflict resolution and other important competencies while in a safe and caring environment.
AAS Kindergarteners could hardly contain their excitement and fascination when surrounded by all the electronics, machinery, and the way the space is meticulously designed and organized to support a submarine crew under tons of water pressure.
Thank you to parents, teachers, students, and everyone in the AAS community who made this celebration special for our youngest trick-or-treaters!
The Band is a popular elective for AAS students from grades 5 – 8. Their Winter Concerts is an exciting December tradition at the school, and we can't wait to hear the Band perform this year!
Over the course of the past couple of months, as part of their Writing Unit, grade 1 students wrote various stories, and today both Grade 1 classes, 1AE and 1MO, join their creative powers in celebration of Writing.
