Giving students a well-rounded education that provides ample college opportunities begins well before they reach high school. Stimulating young minds with diverse activities can help them become higher academic achievers. It also provides a context in which children can discover their individual passions and interests. The following describes a few of the activities that The Benjamin School offers to our lower school students.
As the world becomes increasingly connected through social media outlets and communicative devices, it is more important for children and teens to be proficient in world languages. Spanish is a particularly important language to master, as it is the second-most common tongue in the U.S. That’s why our private school offers Spanish Club for students beginning in the second grade. We also provide French Club for students in grades three through five.
Budgets to support art programs are being slashed from public schools across the nation. This unfortunate development prevents young children from expressing themselves through a highly important medium.. The Benjamin School places a high priority on the arts. Our Art Club is available to all students in first through fifth grades. Though this club, students can explore their artistic interests with both recycled materials and natural media.
Obesity is compromising the health of millions of children in the United States. Like art programs, physical education is no longer offered at many public schools. Our Dance Club, which focuses on hip-hop and jazz for students in the second through fifth grades, gives children the chance to be active, learn different dances, and have fun.
The Benjamin School offers more than 25 different clubs and activities for our lower school students. For more information about these groups, call our West Palm Beach area private school at (561) 472-5998. Our staff would be happy to discuss any aspect of our early childhood education program with parents.
