Stillpoint School, located in Friday Harbor, San Juan Island, northwestern Washington State, is a state-approved, nonprofit private elementary school offering Kindergarten through Sixth grade programs. We offer students a strong academic program focusing on cultural literacy, mathematics, language arts, science, the arts, and cultural diversity. Our curriculum is taught with the newest research-based methods in education, and focuses on current brain-friendly practices. At Stillpoint School, active learning comes to life!
We emphasize a well-researched blend of whole language and phonics, teaching students critical reading strategies and introducing students to high-quality literature.
Our writing program allows students to create and explore many forms of writing, including creative stories, poetry, narrative pieces, expository writing, limericks, essays, and other specific forms and styles of writing.
We focus on the critical Math skills determined by the newest recommendations of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) for content standards and best teaching practices.
Literacy, grammar, and syntax are taught in a comprehensive, hands-on method which encourages fluency, confidence, and mastery of our language.
Our strong social studies curriculum explores geography, government, and history, including the history of San Juan Island, Washington state, and the world.
Our program combines explorations of the world around us with scientific facts and discoveries. We study all forms of science, from Earth sciences and physical science to oceanography and outer space.
Our foreign cultures program is very strong, highlighting many different cultures and focusing on each culture's language, world location, history, cultural traditions, foods, and other important aspects of daily life. This encourages appreciation of diversity and acceptance of differences.
We have an excellent P.E. program which emphasizes cooperation, active participation, lifelong fitness, and the development of gross and fine motor skills.
Stillpoint students create developmentally appropriate art pieces in our rich art program. Art forms, artists, and styles are studied as students learn to speak the "language of art."
Drama and Theater:
We provide an enriching drama program to support our students' creative development, self-confidence, and natural self-expression. Students are encouraged to participate in plays, Reader's Theater, puppet theaters, skits, and other forms of drama.
We teach and model positive problem-solving strategies, cooperative interactions, strategies for working together as a team, and kindness at all times.
