Grade Level Programming
At Tilton School, we believe we do more than just educate, we ignite a passion for lifelong learning.
At the very core of this belief is an integrated teaching approach that is both cross-discipline and grade-specific. Grade Level Programs bring teams of teachers and students together to solve problems, think deeply and work together to navigate their world with character and vision.
Each grade level culminates with a significant performance moment in which students demonstrate in authentic ways the skills and knowledge that they have mastered during the course of the year.
We design learning opportunities in and out of the classroom for students to not only learn but transfer that learning in a context they are unfamiliar with (Areas of Self-Discovery). It is imperative we coach our students to respond in alignment with their values, knowledge, and skills to situations they have not encountered before.
