Elementary Education

The elementary classes (grades 1-6) provide a variety of learning experiences in a traditionally-advanced classroom. Class sizes are smaller by design, which lends to more student-teacher interaction. Students have daily Bible time, which may be a chapel service or Bible class, during which they will learn Bible truths, memorize Bible verses, and sing songs. A strong emphasis is placed on core subjects such as reading/phonics, math, language, history, spelling, penmanship, and science. Each subject is taught through a biblical perspective. Extra time is set aside weekly for music, art, physical education, and library time. Sports opportunities are available through West Gate Baptist Church’s GROW program. By the time a student leaves sixth grade, he will have a strong educational foundation.
