Mandarin is the most widely spoken language in the world. We offer this course at a young age, because younger brains are much better at learning languages. In addition, having a second language allows for the acquisition of additional languages much more easily – math, science and music are all languages.

Technology use in the 21st century has become vital in all aspects of life. The mission of SAES Technology Program is to create an educational environment in every classroom that is strengthened and supported by technology. The objective is to develop student technology literacy skills while at the same time integrate computers into the PreK-fifth classroom curriculum.
This laboratory has been created with the elementary school aged child in mind. PreK3-5th Grade students attend lab each week as part of their resource programming. Experiential learning takes place each week as an extension of the Science curriculum that is taught in the classroom. The science teacher collaborates with classroom teachers to give students the opportunity to fully expand their science knowledge through laboratory time each week.
