The Four Pillars


REACH Elementary School has incorporated the learning expectations for students shown below, based on the Four Pillars developed by faculty and parents at Renaissance School. Every year each faculty member focuses on at least one of the four pillars, incorporating its philosophy into that year's teaching and evaluation. These principles are not just on paper, they inspire the high-quality teaching that is a hallmark of Renaissance School and REACH Schools.


Disciplined Minds

  • Become aware of, and appreciate, the relevance of the learning process to life

  • Learn to probe and investigate, think logically and critically, synthesize ideas, and solve problems

  • Communicate effectively in writing, verbally, and graphically

  • Become skillful researchers--organize, comprehend, evaluate, and interpret information and ideas

  • Make interdisciplinary connections.


Sound Character


  • Demonstrate self-motivation and self-discipline.

  • Become independent, confident problem-solvers who are enthusiastic and willing to take risks

  • Develop awareness, acceptance, and respect for different opinions, cultures, religions, learning styles

  • Work productively with others, cooperate, and be good team players in all areas of life

  • Show respect for rules through the traits of honesty and honor, and display sportsmanship

  • Demonstrate strong social responsibility both inside and outside of school.


Healthy Bodies


  • Gain an understanding of how the body works and how food, alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, human relationships, exercise, and mental health affect the body

  • Make healthy and beneficial choices concerning food, alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, human relationships, exercise, and mental health

  • Make decisions based upon the long-term effects of choices, not just what feels good or works for today

  • Promote health-positive choices amongst peers and family


Creative Spirits


  • Communicate confidently, effectively and with sensitivity in a variety of forms

  • Recognize, analyze, and appreciate creative writing and the visual and performing arts

  • Cultivate a safe, nurturing and enthusiastic environment among all members of the community while engaging in the creative process

  • Gain a perspective of self.


Diversity and Inclusion


Our Four Pillars promote multicultural perspectives through a 21st-century curriculum which prepares students to work, lead, and live effectively in a diverse world. Diversity includes individual and group differences in areas such as ethnicity, socio-economic status, gender, age, sexuality, religion, learning styles, and physical abilities. In a 21st century global society, it becomes ever more important that we live, work, and study with a multiplicity of people who are not just like ourselves.
