A New approach to elementary

The Elements Program is our elementary school in Costa Rica utilizing project-based learning in a dual language setting. Our Team of Teachers at Journey Elements take children through a journey of discovery where education is delivered through meaningful experiences and learning invitations.

For a lifelong love of learning

Elementary years are crucial, not only for the rapid and vital learning that happens but also because of the life-long social and emotional patterns that require nurturing to be positively defined.

Through daily morning circles and weekly advisory periods, students in the Elements Program learn tenants of community building and non-violent communication

Our 10:1 Ratio

Students are grouped by age and move together through a diversity of classes and electives. Our strict 10:1 ratio allows us to truly individualize each student’s experience in order to challenge them appropriately.

The Elements Program curriculum comprises of the following interdisciplinary subject areas: learning strategies, both English and Spanish language arts, math, science lab, world studies, farm and garden, swim and the inclusion of daily electives.

US accredited, Journey School’s central tenants continue to be kindness, empathy, compassion and academic excellence. We work closely with Cognia, PBL Works, REGGIO Children and Conscious Discipline.
