In today's world, strong literacy, numeracy, social and teamwork skills are essential in whatever career path one chooses. Therefore, our focus is on developing the foundation for these skills. At Webber Academy, we believe all students, even those in Kindergarten, need to be articulate in their speech, and literate in their approach to all subjects. A strong foundation in basic mathematical operations leads to an appreciation and enjoyment of the wonderful world of mathematics. Learning to solve problems with inquisitiveness, enthusiasm and creativity allows students to further explore more sophisticated math and sciences as they progress through the upper grades.
Students are exposed to print and multimedia materials of all types, and in all subject areas (textbooks, picture books, magazines, poetry, newspapers, reference materials, CD-ROM, cassettes and disks), so that they learn how to locate information quickly depending on the tasks involved. It is important in today’s Information Age for children to learn how to access information, and how to develop questioning and research strategies allowing them to survive in our rapidly changing world.
