At Arthur Kramer Elementary we strive to develop self reliant
learners through inquiry based instruction, reflection, and goal setting.
In order to instill a desire for lifelong learning, we aim to intrinsically motivate
students through purposeful, engaging lessons that impact their beliefs
and mold their thinking.
Kramer recently received an IB Primary Years Program (PYP) designation. The PYP program focuses on developing students' academics while preparing them to become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves, others, and the world around them.
Kramer is founded on preparing our students to become productive and contributing citizens to our global society. For this reason, we implemented both a 1-way and a 2-way dual language program. This program teaches Spanish and English through academic content. Our program is unique in that students are partnered based on their native language and are an integral part to each other's learning. Spanish and English is not taught in isolation but is acquired through learning the content in the designated language. This rigorous program helps develop our students to become global citizens.
Kramer prides itself on our belief that effective instruction makes the most difference in students' academic performance. Our teachers come from diverse backgrounds and experiences to deliver quality instruction to meet the needs of all learners. Our digital classrooms are equipped with Smartboards, as well as Kindle Fires for every 3rd-5th grad student. At Kramer, we ensure our students are receiving 21st Century skills to become digitally literate.
