Our Perspective

How we see Glarea Elevated Learning

All schools, to some extent, defy the various stereotypes that the general population might have about private education, though Glarea Elevated Learning is a particularly stark example of that. There are no ivy-covered walls, the hallways are wider, the entrance more fluid and casually inviting. Activity is foregrounded by the design and orientation of the instructional spaces: students step out of a classroom and onto the ice rink; on the way to math class, they’ll pass martial arts and dance studios. The classrooms are perhaps the first truly VR learning spaces in the country, with giant screens allowing students to conference in, interacting in real time with the students in the school. All of those attributesfrom design to tech integrationsupport the initial concept that the school has been formed around, namely to offer students a uniquely immersive academic experience, one that will contribute to their understanding of themselves as learners and build the postures and behaviors for their success. From the classrooms to the curriculum, the school has been created to allow students to work collaboratively with peers and mentors; to engage effectively within both virtual and in-person settings; to communicate ideas effectively to others through a range of media; and to live active, healthy lives. In all, Glarea is positioned to become an important model in how to deliver those things in creative, active, uniquely engaging ways.

What do you do differently and uniquely well?

"Elevated Learning drives Glareans to aspire to be self-aware, critical thinkers prepared for the future. We face challenges on a daily basis and our responses determine our future. Often, we don’t pause to consider different perspectives and design thoughtful solutions. Challenge Based Learning is a learning framework used to equip students with the skills necessary to identify challenges and develop innovative and sustainable solutions."

To your knowledge, why do families choose your school over others?

"Our class sizes, a maximum of 15, along with our team, unconventional facility and Challenge Based Learning programming are what families continually outline as being the key aspects of our school that galvanized their decision to become, and remain Glareans.

At Glarea, Mandarin, French and Coding are a fundamental part of our programming starting in Kindergarten. Proficiency in other languages enhances creativity and mental flexibility. While coding allow our students to utilize logic."

What aspect of your school is underappreciated?

Our expanded school hours from 7:45am to 4pm with optional after-school club between 4 to 5pm supports both parent and student work life balance.

All facilities are conveniently located in walking distance, allowing our students to have access to professional coached sports program like ice hockey, swimming, tennis, golf and fitness."

What might families find surprising about your school?

"Located centrally on top of an ice rink, Glarea is a multi-dimensional space encompassing a community feel. Glarea does not confine students to typical classrooms; furthermore, Glarea is a school with an open space with flexible learning"
