The Yadkin Valley Community School’s curriculum is on a cycle which rotates through life science, physical science and earth science. In middle school, chemistry is incorporated as well. Students gain a deeper understanding of the world around them through hands-on demonstrations, experiments and research projects.
In a Montessori classroom, everything is linked through Cosmic Education. For example, while learning about the geography of Africa, the K-2nd class built rainforest biomes. While learning about medieval history, the 6-8th grade class learned about simple machines and made catapults.
