Each trimester, the primary grade students are given an option of elective classes they can choose from for their last hour of classes. By offering a variety of classes in both right and left brain thinking, the students get a well-rounded education is areas in which they have interest.
According to the theory of left-brain or right-brain dominance, each side of the brain controls different types of thinking. Additionally, people are said to prefer one type of thinking over the other.
For example, a person who is “left-brained” is often said to be more logical, analytical, and objective. Classes that appeal to them are debate, chess, computer and robotics.
A person who is “right-brained” is said to be more intuitive, thoughtful, creative and subjective. These students would enjoy dance, gardening, music, and art to name a few.
Each trimester, the elective classes change so that the students experience different subject matters and opportunities.
