Education at Polaris

We believe every child deserves the ability to be inspired to learn, in a way that works for and enables her/him to reach their potential, supported by a teacher that is passionate about their education. 

Students' at the Polaris are educated with these elements.

Community Building

Every morning, the entire school comes together as a community for announcements, celebration of special events or achievements, activities and discussions around a monthly social/ emotional Core Value, a song led by a student volunteer, and The Pledge of Allegiance led by another student volunteer.  

NH Board of Ed Curriculum

As a public school that delivers the New Hampshire Board of Education required and approved curriculum, we offer a small classroom setting where students are supported by passionate educators.  This includes common core mixed with our own learning plan to provide a well-rounded education for our elementary aged students.

Personalized Learning Plans (PLPs)

We offer personalize learning, which means we work with each student to create a plan to support their education.  This means understanding  their goals and motivations and creating a plan to meet the child where they are at academically and socially.  We combine each of these elements with performance data, and wrap it in a framework that records, monitors, and offers feedback as change occurs.

Skills Exploration & Assessment

As students progress, we offer a multi-faceted assessment to determine when the student has mastered a subject.  Once a subject is mastered, the student progresses to the next level of learning in reading, math, etc. 

Project Based Learning

A core element of our learning is a dynamic classroom approach where students acquire deeper knowledge of subjects, through active exploration, real-world connections and structured collaboration.  Projects are students driven and are developed over an extended period of time to allow them to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging, and complex question, problem, or challenge.

Movement & The Arts

To support all of the other learning opportunities we provide, Polaris students are able to move and be creative throughout the day.  Students work in centers in their classroom, have the ability to choose a lesson and participate in our healthy minds course where we practice yoga, mediation and creative thinking.  Additionally, we meet the NH State physical education and art class requirements.  ,
