Rancho Christian Elementary School provides a low student to teacher ratio that has been determined based on grade level. The elementary school uses the school’s ESLR’s as a guiding tool for all instructional and learning activities within the classroom. The achievement of essential knowledge and skills as well as higher order thinking skills are evaluated through a variety of learning activities within the classroom, field trips, and at-home projects.
Additionally, RCS integrates Biblical principles throughout each lesson in all subject areas. These principles have been adapted to specific lessons in order for students to gain biblical application in specific learning areas. These principles and lessons taught are consistent in grade level appropriateness and incorporate a scaffolding strategy for revisiting previous material. Furthermore, students are equipped to form a strong Christian world view through attending weekly chapels and regular Bible classes.
Furthermore, an allocation of in-class elective instruction time has been incorporated into each grade level's schedule. The instructional time is determined by grade level. This includes elective classes for students to enrich skills in other areas outside of the classroom. RCS provides a variety of elective classes for students to participate in, on a weekly basis.
Upper Elementary School
Starting in the fall of 2018, Rancho Christian School is delighted to announce the establishment of our Upper Elementary School, exclusively home to our 5th and 6th grade classes. With a designated, secure campus in our Village bungalows, access to exciting electives and technology, the Upper Elementary experience is unique to 5th and 6th grade, distinct from the Kindergarten-4th grade experience, and different from Middle School.
For more information on the Upper Elementary Model, and why this is such a unique educational experience, see our Upper Elementary Info Sheet and Upper Elementary Curriculum Guide. You may also contact our Admissions Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
