Here at the Eleanor Van Gelder School, we are two schools in
and 4 follow the “traditional” elementary model where students have a
primary teacher that teaches all core subjects - Reading, Writing, Mathematics,
Science and Social Studies. The
remaining subjects are taught by subject area specialists
and 6 students have a different teacher for all subjects. Your child will have a schedule that
resembles that of an individualized middle or high school schedule. However, your child will generally stay with
his or her peers from class to class.
