With a strong inquiry-based approach to learning, Tuckahoe students are taught in an environment that maintains high expectations and standards for each child. The teaching staff uses best instructional practices, higher level thinking skills and problem-solving strategies to ensure academic excellence and achievement. Teachers develop lessons that address a range of learning styles, abilities, interests and multiple intelligences. Teaching and learning are facilitated with technology and a multi-sensory program for the delivery of instruction. Academic lessons, activities and projects are further enriched and stimulated by a unifying school theme focused on environmental habitats.
Tuckahoe’s Discovery Schoolyard program provides a creative and innovative way to meet the needs of the whole child by using the schoolyard as a context for integrating the APS curriculum and providing cross-graded experiences.
Tuckahoe also serves as a sister school to Matuwa Primary School in Uganda, providing students with a global educational perspective.
