At McGuffey, it’s important that students feel at home, not just in their own classroom, but throughout the campus. We do this in a variety of ways, including Partners, the Step-Up Program, and Open Doors.
Open Doors occurs each month when we open the doors between Primary and Lower Elementary, and allow the students to choose where they want to work. Older students have a chance to visit the classroom they once called home, while younger ones get to visit where the “big kids” work.
Over time, we find most children not only feel comfortable in both spaces, but with both sets of students and teachers! Each session is an incredible opportunity for our older children to be teachers, and for the younger ones to be exposed to big ideas.
