A New Dawn Elementary and Pre-school provides exciting learning opportunities from Pre-school through 6th Grade.
Our traditional school calendar runs from September to June.
A New Dawn also offers full-day summer programs from July through August.
The diverse faculty work together to provide a delineated scope for curriculum and teaching in all areas of early education.
We establish guidelines for expectations and curriculum development.
We also provide resources and materials and collaborative planning for program implementation, and we support performance-based assessment.
We claim the responsibility to prepare students with the foundation for enlightened citizenry and the love for lifelong learning.
A New Dawn fosters a forum to strengthen language arts, building concepts in literary skills and critical thinking strategies.
This is developed in all areas of the narrative language, maintaining, and transferring to form a basis for language acquisition, as well as for social and academic achievement in English.
Emphasis is placed on utilizing students' prior knowledge, learning style, and cultural background as building blocks for instruction.
Our effective instruction allows students to capitalize on their existing linguistic, academic, cognitive, emotional, and aesthetic strengths.
