Redeemer Baptist Elementary uses the A Beka Curriculum. This curriculum provides a comprehensive education with a Christian perspective. At each grade level, the teacher follows a broad scope and sequence to review and introduce various skills. The material is presented in a sequential manner creating a ladder toward higher learning. Throughout the year, the children are challenged to be responsible students and actively engaged in their own learning, which enable parents to assist, as they wish in their child’s progress and academic growth.
Redeemer has computer classes for all grades. The students interact with the computer using reading, math, and language software. In the upper grades students are taught word processing, data base and spread sheets.
Children have music instruction twice a week. They will develop theory skills and vocal. There is a Christmas and Spring musical each year.
