Academics, Appreciation, Accountability and Arts are the four A’s of the Drew Model Elementary School program. Academics reflects strong measurable academic growth and achievement for all. Appreciation fosters respect and high expectations for all through strong communication and effective collaboration. Accountability honors the shared responsibility of staff, families and students for student learning. The Arts recognizes the need for innovative and creative learning opportunities that excite and engage children by using literature, poetry, dance, visual arts, music, art history and writing.
The Four A’s are integrated throughout our two instructional programs, Graded and Montessori. Our Graded program incorporates traditional practices serving children age four to grade five. Children of the same age group explore hands-on learning activities through individual, small group and whole class teacher-guided lessons. The Montessori program is based upon Dr. Maria Montessori’s philosophy of “educating the whole child.” Children age three to grade five engage in learning activities of their own choosing in a multi-age, well-ordered physical environment.
We are a neighborhood, countywide elementary school serving our immediate Nauck neighborhood and Arlington residents across the county.
