At Helios, Humanities and Science are integrated into our cohesive and highly engaging Expeditions.
Activities woven throughout the themes provide the depth, complexity and relevance that gifted children need to fully and joyfully learn.
Humanities at Helios includes the study of language arts, literature, history and the visual and performing arts. Helios teaches the Common Core Standards for Language Arts and Literacy, integrated seamlessly into our themed Expeditions. We provide an irresistible hook and exemplary experiences for gifted learners.
In Lower School, students receive regular, direct instruction in reading and writing, often in smaller ability-based groups. We combine short, targeted mini-lessons with practice and small group sharing. As our students move into Middle School, the Humanities curriculum begins to prepare students for high school and beyond by training them to be careful, critical readers, effective researchers, and persuasive communicators.
