The First Grade program at Dade Christian School provides the basic foundation of learning for every child. A child’s study habits, learning skills, and attitude toward education are formed during this primary stage. Our curriculum is a thoroughly integrated, academically balanced program with a consistent Christian emphasis. Bible, Language Arts, Phonics, Reading, Math, Science, History, Spelling, and Penmanship all represent the subject areas. Our total program has been developed to challenge students to develop their skills in the intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social realms. An emphasis is also placed on social interaction among the students, giving them opportunities to develop social values; respect, sharing, group acceptance, independence, and dependability.
Physical Education is included daily for all first graders. In addition Enrichment classes consist of Art, Computers, Music, Spanish and Library Skills. Students attend each of these classes once per week.
