Grades: PK - 6 | 37 students
At Second Nature Academy we strive to provide a learning environment that enables children to experience success in all curriculum areas through the use of an integrated, multi-sensory curriculum.
Our goal is to provide an alternative educational environment that focuses on Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligence Theory.
This pedagogy encompasses eight intelligence areas: verbal/linguistic, logical/mathematical, bodily/kinesthetic, musical, visual/spacial, interpersonal/self, and natualist.
It is our belief that all children do not acquire knowledge in the same way.
Therefore, we provide many varied instructional methods in order to create a more diverse learning climate.
Teachers embrace all eight intelligence strengths while planning lessons and students are encouraged to approach learning through investigating, questioning, reasoning , and predicting.
Our mission is to provide student-centered learning environment that focuses on the whole child; to embrace eight intelligence strengths as indicated by Dr.
Howard Gardner of Harvard University; to provide the fundamentals of education using inquiry based learning and multi-sensory instruction; to foster an attitude of cultural appreciation; to support physical, social and emotional well-being; to promote values and life skills such as responsibility, punctuality, consideration, kindness, understanding, and compassion; to encourage an appreciation of our natural environment; and to develop an enthusiasm for learning and acquiring new skills.
