What Makes Our School Unique?
Our Teachers
At KLA Elementary, our teachers and staff are passionate, knowledgeable, caring individuals, dedicated to providing quality education. Our staff is unique, with qualifications stemming throughout many different fields. Among us are teachers with backgrounds and credentials in mental health and school counseling, speech and language pathology, health and fitness administration, studio arts, musical theater, gymnastics and of course, K-12 education, amongst many other fields. The individuality of each of our teachers creates a richness in our team as a whole. Our teachers provide an inimitable educational experience, tailored to the learning process of each child in their care.

Professional Development
Other than receiving the ongoing support of pedagogical coordinators and directors, the entire staff meets every week to share ideas and discuss the projects and experiences that are taking place in their classrooms. Our teachers are also provided with 7.5 hours a week to work on their projections, their classroom logistics and organization, and to meet with parents. We know how important it is to provide our educators with the necessary tools to further enhance their research and investigation on children’s development and progressive and innovative educational practices. As a Reggio Emilia inspired school, we maintain a close relationship with Reggio Children and The Loris Malaguzzi Centre, as well as with educators from Reggio Emilia, Italy who now come visit our school every year! 
Our Enrichment Programs
Our enrichment programs have been thoughtfully developed to challenge our elementary aged children while enhancing and encouraging critical thinking through differentiated instruction. Some of our enrichment programs include:
  • Physical Education (from two to four times a week)
  • Martial Arts (once a week)
  • Technology and engineering (twice a week)
  • Music (twice a week)
  • Spanish (from two to three times a week)
  • Soccer, Basketball and other sports programs!
Our Atelier and our Sound and Movement Studio
Our Atelier (art studio),
offers the children endless opportunities to experiment and explore with different materials that invite them to express their thoughts and ideas using a variety of languages with confidence and creativity.
In our Sound and Movement Studio
the children create stories using their bodies and encounter different layers of corporal expression. 
Learning is not limited to the classroom, children are exposed to areas outside of the school and they use those surroundings to make connections to their classroom projects.
Collaboration between teachers and parents is an integral part of the educational experience at KLA Elementary School.
The Future of Our School
