Students are offered a daily instructional program that replicates the Montessori method of curriculum and instruction. Students learn through exploration with emphasis upon child-choice, consequences, respect and decision-making. Students work at their own developmental level to ensure learning experiences are meaningful and positively reinforcing. Four Winds implements a standards-based curriculum for grades K-3 as required by California Department of Education.
For students in grades 4-9, Four Winds offers a daily instructional program that aligns teaching methods to individual learning styles of students. The learning styles inventory enhances the ability of the teacher to respond to the cognitive, physiological, sociological and cultural aspects of learning. Teachers prescribe individualized instructional plans to increase student achievement. Four Winds implements a standards-based curriculum for grades 4-9 as required by California Department of Education.
Four Winds offers an Independent Study program for grades 8-12. The Independent Study program provides an Individualized Education Plan for each student that meets the curricular objectives and fulfills the graduation requirements for students whose needs may be best met through study outside the regular classroom setting. Students develop individualized learning goals to reach their full potential as functional, self-sufficient people.
