St. Christopher’s understands that boys need to be actively engaged in their learning. For an experience to have impact, boys must use information in real and meaningful ways. Physical activity and movement enhance all learning opportunities.
In Lower School science, for example, students studying Newton’s Laws of Motion work collaboratively in groups to measure how high balls bounce from various heights. Kindergarten classes use pumpkins to integrate learning of math, science, and reading. Students learn Voicethread to read out loud and listen to fluency. Through Skype, Spanish classes engage in conversations with students and teachers at a school in Mexico.
