Grammar School     Grades K5 - 4th

The Grammar years are a time of fun, joy, and exploration as students make new discoveries each day with both their classmates and family. Students begin with the phonetic recognition of letters and sounds of the English language that become the foundation of wonderful classical literature.

As you walk the hallways, you can overhear the classrooms that are often filled with the chanting, laughing, rhyming, singing voices of excited children who are learning new concepts that will lay the foundation of their education. They learn poetry, folktales, and stories of the past; they also write the stories of the present and the future with creativity and innocence. When Lake Pointe students leave fourth grade, their knowledge is bountiful, and their hearts are full of memories that will last a lifetime.

As at traditional five-day schools, grammar school involves teachers, students, and parents. However, the roles of Lake Pointe teachers and parents are unique. The teachers bring a new world to students with an exceptional teacher’s heart to reach the hearts of children and convey passion for the subjects they teach. This takes place in a cutting-edge schedule of classes. Also, particularly unique is the “co-teacher” role of the parent. On satellite campus days during the school year, parents can be found in their home continuing the teaching process with their children. During on-campus school days, parents are often included and involved in the activities, field trips, or recesses. We are a family ministry.

The grammar years of ABC’s and 123’s usually seem to go by fast for parents, but there is great pleasure for all in these rich school years at Lake Pointe.
