The Arts at Calvert School

Our students are bright, inquisitive, and creative. Throughout their years at Calvert, they are given significant opportunities in music, theater, dance, visual arts, digital arts, art history, and much more. These components of our curriculum are equally as important to the learning process as our strong academic program.

Students express themselves in imaginative ways and are encouraged to broaden their educational experience while expanding their talents. Our facilities include an auditorium that’s used for Lower School drama productions and special events, a Black Box Theater, which is home to our Middle School performers, a dance studio, and two beautifully-lit art studios.

unnamed

IN THE LOWER SCHOOL math, reading, and writing are introduced in ways that nurture students’ natural curiosity. Subjects are brought to life through stories. Drama, painting, and drawing are used to lead students in learning beyond the memorization of facts. Students compose and illustrate their own textbooks – one of the unique aspects of a Waldorf education.

Throughout the lower school students take part in activities that promote independence and personal responsibility. They work in teams to solve problems. Students collaborate on assignments, such as building a shelter on the Waldorf campus using natural resources found in their environment. Students begin to understand that cooperation is essential for individuals and groups.

inner_mainImage_aboutParents are willing to do just about anything to help their children succeed. Whether it’s athletics, art, or music, we spend thousands of dollars every year helping our kids become the star quarterback, the lead in the play, or the featured soloist in the concert.

But what about math?

Just like organizations that serve to enhance a child’s sports skills, artistic ability or musical talent, Mathnasium attracts gifted STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) students and helps them master math. All of the instructors at Mathnasium are highly competent up to or beyond calculus.

“We have the brain power to help any student looking to take their math competency to the next level,” says Jim Trexler, Center Director of Mathnasium of Roland Park. “About 30 percent of our kids are working beyond their grade level, we expect that trend to continue.” Read More →

The number of children getting their education in a homeschooled setting is increasing and will continue to do so. Most parents providing homeschooling can sufficiently provide a sound, base level math education using their homeschooling tools and connections. “However, it is not uncommon for the parent to “hit a wall” when their child begins to enter the world of algebra”, says Jim Trexler, Mathnasium of Roland Park, Center Director. At this point, the parent begins exploring options with fellow homeschooling parents. Those options range from teaming with other parents, on-line tools, individual tutors, and supplemental learning companies like Mathnasium. Read More →

Striving For Academic Excellence at Calvert School

Calvert SchoolAcademic Excellence

At Calvert School, the youngest students begin their education with a focus on the fundamentals. Children are taught the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic to develop a mastery of these subjects through their course of study in the Lower School.

As early as Fifth Age, children are learning reading and math skills, as well as being introduced to a foreign language. Beginning in the Seventh Age, students learn the formal Calvert Script and how to develop and write compositions. Also at this time, students begin to keep folder papers, a collection of work that is corrected and perfected over the school year so that students learn from their mistakes and master those skills that will prepare them for future academic excellence.

By Tenth Age, students have mastered these fundamentals and are ready to enter the Calvert Middle School with a sense of purpose and pride in their work.

Sean McComb – Teacher of the Year

Teachers don’t get paid a whole lot of money, which is one reason it’s awesome that the person Maryland chooses to recognize as “teacher of the year” gets a check for $10,000. Many of us would take that money to buy a car, or pay off student loans, or just go out to many really, really nice dinners. But this year’s top teacher did something much more inspiring with his prize money.
