Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning Our curriculum is focused on preparing each and every student to look forward to college. At Pegasus we believe the success of a child is built on the knowledge each grade provides, taking them one step closer to their goals. All students receive instruction through a well-rounded curriculum that focuses on five kinds of learning. Each grade level curriculum the right brain, left brain, physical learning, hand working, and community and nature, as the school's building block for learning.
