HighScope is an active learning approach for classroom instruction. In active learning settings, adults expand children’s thinking with diverse materials and nurturing interactions. Each classroom is organized into centers and workshops to meet the needs of all students’ academic and social needs.
Bishop Elementary offers a variety of classroom options including multi-age classrooms where different aged students are combined into the same classroom, looping classrooms where students will attend a single grade classroom in which a teacher spends two years with the same group of students, and Spanish immersion (currently Kindergarten and first grade only) where the language of instruction will be Spanish.
