Capitol Hill Day School
At Capitol Hill Day School, we aim to develop in each child a love of learning and an abiding care for others. This approach to learning underlies the curriculum, and is reflected in the thinking of the teachers, children, and parents. Collaborative, hands-on learning at the School is supported by maintaining a low student-to-teacher ratio in every classroom, with two co-teachers from prekindergarten through grade five. In all grades, many classes are taught in half groups. Children are encouraged to search for patterns and relationships. In virtually every subject, they find, define, and create patterns that spiral, branch, repeat, and grow geometrically. Learning in this way develops habits of observing, analyzing, and predicting. Teachers work together to integrate the curriculum so that subjects are studied in depth and from many directions. Field trips help children connect school experiences to the world around them. Literature and mathematics can be part of the study of science and social studies. Student activities in art and music reflect classroom studies. Certain themes serve as pillars around which the School's program spirals. In social studies, students examine relationships between environment and culture. In mathematics, children in all grades use similar materials to develop geometric and algebraic concepts. The revisiting of important ideas assures program continuity and allows children to deepen understandings. Caring for others is taught in all that we do. Older students learn and play with younger ones and assume responsibilities in the School community. Younger children are encouraged to be inclusive and kind in their interactions. Students discuss and learn from their differences with friendliness and trust, and from this perspective, examine ethical issues that arise from academic studies. When you visit, we hope you will sense the interplay between learning and caring as you see children greeting friends and engaging in activities and discussions. Capitol Hill Day School’s Summer Camp 2015 ends August 7, 2015. We had a great year with almost 300 campers who enjoyed 48 camps, led by 15 counselors, and 140 field trips! Check back in January 2016 for news about next year's Summer Camp program.
