The MICA elementary program
reflects a distinct and caring educational experience for our students.
This is a critical time for our children to develop confidence in all areas of life; therefore,
we focus on the total growth of the developing child, encompassing social, physical, emotional,
and cultural needs in addition to academic development.
We fully implement CCSS (Common Core State Standards), which is a set of high-quality
standards in mathematics and English Language Arts and Literature.
We also practice “Lucy Calkins,” Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop daily for the literacy
instruction. The goal is to prepare students for any reading and writing task they will
face or set themselves, to turn them into life-long, confident readers and writers
who display agency and independence in their future endeavors.
