The Martha and Josh Morriss Mathematics & Engineering Elementary School offers students instructional opportunities not commonly found elsewhere, specifically in the areas of math, engineering and technology. Our students enjoy a curriculum designed to be compelling to move them beyond basic knowledge and support the transfer of learning. In addition to extraordinary academic opportunities, students are taught Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People through our Leader in Me program. Students learn the importance of interpersonal-effectiveness, responsibility, integrity, collaboration and renewal. Both our nationally recognized model of instruction and our philosophy of leadership align to create an environment where students assume responsibility for their own learning, and where autonomy and initiative are encouraged and celebrated.
Our curriculum is standards-based, integrated, and connected to the lives of learners. It is designed to be compelling in order to support the transfer of learning. Instruction is student-centered, hands-on, and concept-based. Teachers facilitate inquiry-based learning in which they tap into the student’s natural interest in problem-solving. Additionally, students participate in an engaging variety of curricular and co-curricular activities that include hands-on artistic expression, technology applications, robotics, holistic fitness, dramatic and musical productions, and leadership development.
