Students are taught to develop their talents each day.
The Locke School's LEGO Lab is a space where our students hone their engineering skills. Using the Engineering Design Process, they imaginatively address everyday challenges and develop creative solutions. Students develop an in-depth understanding of science and engineering concepts and are encouraged to be collaborative, flexible and curious problem solvers.
Lessons in computer literacy, coding, robotics and the LEGO education curriculum prepare our students to become the creators of the future and 21st century problem solvers.
KIBO Robots are used to bring robotics and coding to our young learners and spark their interest in computer science through visual coding. We use the Engineering is Elementary curriculum with grades 3-5. This fun, flexible, inquiry-based curriculum integrates engineering with science, developing key 21st century skills that will lead to success in school and life.
Visit KIBO and Engineering is Elementary to learn more about these programs.
Locke School students participate in a visual arts program. Students explore techniques such as drawing, collage, print making, and painting, as well as learn art history.
The physical education program at The Locke School is based in Physical Literacy Skills. Physical literacy is the ability to move with competence and confidence in a wide variety of physical activities in multiple environments that benefit the healthy development of the whole person. Grades 2-5th are focusing on skill use during games and 3k-1st are focused on the basic skills needed for the games that the 2-5th grade are learning. The students are also learning the importance of good sportsmanship and respect.
The Locke School music program is providing students with a positive outlet that allows them to showcase their musicianship through exploring, creating, connecting, and performing. They will experience cultures, values, and history through the lens of musicians from around the world.
