Classrooms are learning and social communities with children of varying abilities, ages, genders and backgrounds. Except at Pre-Primary, children generally remain three years in each classroom, experiencing increasingly complex work and developing order, initiative and responsibility within a family-like atmosphere. Older children become leaders and mentors, reinforcing social and academic lessons for their younger peers while expanding their own intellectual and social skills.
