Spanish: Students in grades TK – 5 have the opportunity to develop or build upon existing Spanish language skills. Students in grades 6 – 8 will attend daily Spanish language and literature classes as part of their preparation for competitive high schools and colleges and for leadership in their local community and global society.
Arts: In grades 2 – 8, students study arts disciplines including visual art, music, theater, and dance through a variety of modalities. Arts classes integrate history, culture, creative production, reflection and evaluation of work products, and open-ended questioning to advance critical thinking skills and creative expression.
Technology: Students in grades 2 – 8 attend weekly Technology classes to learn typing, coding, online navigation, and website development. These classes will continue to evolve to reflect current technologies and the attendant skills required for educational access and future college and career success.
Physical Education: The Mission Preparatory School’s physical education curriculum reflects California State Standards and teaches students the importance of a fit and healthy lifestyle. Physical education classes are designed to develop motor skills and an understanding of common sports and forms of physical movement (i.e. yoga, dance, martial arts). The curriculum prepares students for the California Physical Education test, teaches students how to play different sports and games, and reinforces the concepts of fitness, nutrition, teamwork, and fair play.
