Performing Arts The Performing Arts Program greets each child's individual stage of musical development and nurtures whatever that musical passion may be. Singing is extremely basic in a child's connection to music and for that reason, it is a major emphasis in the program. All other musical experiences -- whether listening, moving, creating, researching, dancing, or playing -- have singing at their core.
Art The Art Program at Rohan Woods employs a comprehensive approach in which students are exposed to all facets of art, including not only studio production, but art history, art appreciation as well as aesthetics. Drawing, painting, fiber art, printmaking, sculpture, and ceramics are part of the program as are research and writing. Specific instruction in technique, along with multiple opportunities to practice and build skills, allows students to create wonderful works of art.
Technology The Rohan Woods Technology Program reflects the everchanging nature of this essential component of education. Through computer instruction, students move from basic mouse movement skills to word processing, multimedia presentations, keyboarding, and finally to developing web pages. Students benefit from one-to-one computing via desk top and personal laptop instruction to enhance cross-platform training as well as on Intelliboards located within classrooms.
Physical Education The Rohan Woods Physical Education Program is designed to promote individual success tempered by personal and social responsibility. The program is sports oriented, heavily weighted toward team sports, and focuses on learning and following the rules of games as well as game theory. For our younger students, emphasis is physical skills, body skills, movement, and balance. Students in Third through Sixth Grade become more involved in team sports, including competition with other independent schools. Our state-of-the-art gymnasium and large playing field enable children to stretch their physical abilities.
Foreign Language The Rohan Woods Language Program relies on four basic tools for second language acquisition: dialogue, games, flash cards, and textbooks. Mastery of concepts is measured primarily through teacher observation, short quizzes and the ability to respond using the target language.
Science The Science Program at Rohan Woods focuses on four basic areas: earth sciences, biology, chemistry, and physics. Our approach is highly experiential through hands-on activities that permit students to demonstrate enduring understandings of knowledge gained throughout their tenure at the school.
