EVERETT CHRISTIAN SCHOOL Preparing children to be servants of God in His world

Math

Mathematics is one tool by which we better understand the way that God designed the universe. Students come to value God's sense of order and precision as they learn to think mathematically. They are encouraged to be mathematical problem solvers while developing skills in number and operation, patterning, geometry, measurement, probability, and analysis. Although our balanced math curriculum provides ample opportunities for hands on experimentation and problem solving, teachers also ensure that students develop strong skills in basic mathematical operations.


Science

Science is about asking questions, not about memorizing facts and figures from a textbook. At Everett Christian School, students begin to develop a passionate interest and sense of wonderment of God's creation through the science program. Teachers use hands-on activities and technology in new and innovative ways, integrated with reading and writing projects to reinforce the scientific concepts being presented.


Bible

Our main Bible curriculum provides a study of the Bible that leads the student to discover God, who manifested Himself in the Old Testament, and is eager to manifest Himself today in the lives of our children. Students are led through the study of the Bible in a way that encourages them to process the Biblical truths and apply Biblical principles to daily living.


Language

The elementary level language arts program balances both a literature-based approach with phonics creating life-long readers and writers who clearly demonstrate clarity in logic, persuasiveness, creativity, and accuracy. The ECS language arts approach helps students appreciate the diversity of human experience, culture, and values, and to evaluate spoken and written messages.


Social Studies

Students develop an understanding of how God's hand has worked throughout history, and how Christians have made a difference in the world. The curriculum is designed to start with the familiar and expand beyond that each year. Therefore, students learn how a community functions, then about Everett, then Washington State, then the United States and the rest of the world.


Technology

The technology available in the classroom is state-of-the-art providing access to these powerful tools in a controlled and balanced way. Each classroom is outfitted with desktop computers.   Also we have a cart of MacBook laptops that are used by all students throughout the year.  It is our desire that students learn to use these tools and enhance their keyboarding skills, understanding and use of the web, and build a sense of confidence with technology.
