Learn with Us
As a progressive education, Elyon Christian School strives to give the best program to our students. We combine national and international curriculum in order to create one integrated curriculum that is engaging and suitable for the global advance. We provide a well-rounded and limitless opportunity for our students to explore each subject within the established holistic foundation.
TEACHING APPROACH – PRESCHOOL
We deliver the specific topics according to the student’s age in the class by providing centers inside the class. Children are asked to learn by exploring, observing and applying their skills to the topics given. We use this method to develop and understand their multiple intelligences because we believe that God has created each child in a special way.
There are 8 centers in each class that are available for students:
- Water and sand
The Montessori approach is used to deliver the learning process using practical, sensory, math and language materials. We teach our student to be independent and attentive in class as a part of school readiness preparation. We build hand and eyes coordination and strengthen their motor skills before they are ready to read and write through practical and sensorial materials.
Children learn from the concrete objects in the abstract. We teach the fundamental concept of numbers, colors, shapes, size, and others in fun ways by using interactive teaching aids. We also integrate the language tools in teaching children how to read. We use phonics so the children are able to read by recognizing the sounds of letters to combine the letters into words and words into sentences.
TEACHING APPROACH – PRIMARY | SECONDARY | HIGH SCHOOL
Integrated Teaching Learning (ITL)
ITL is a program that is designed to discover efficiency of a lesson towards student’s competence development. It is consist of discussion in a small group to encourage critical thinking skills, communication skills, information processing, and understanding the main issue of a problem.
Problem Based Learning.
Problem Based Learning (PBL) is a method to develop the problem-solving ability through real-life experience. The students are encouraged to find a solution through these stages:
- An orientation of the problem
- Organizing individual task
- Supervision on individual or group analysis
- Presentation solution of the problem
Project Based Learning (PBL)
PBL is a method to develop a real-life problem-solving skill through individual or group project. The purpose of this approach is to give the students an opportunity to explore their creativity and knowledge in order to create a real product or solution that is useful in daily activities. The students are encouraged to complete their project through these stages:
- Students are given a project on a theme/topic based on the lesson plan
- Students are given time to do an authentic research or experiment according to the theme/topic
- Students are presenting the real result from the research or experiment following a class discussion to improve the result.
Discovery learning encourages the students to have a hands-on experience based on conceptual lesson and theory. The teachers will guide the students to analyze the concept meticulously and do the experiments that allow the students to formulate their own theory based on the concept that has been explained before.
The flipped classroom is a process where students are required to preview the lesson at home through key point summary, videos, online discussion or journals. The teachers will guide the students to get a better understanding of the topic in the classroom through projects, class discussion, laboratory research, and deep explanation.
The traditional classroom teaching approach lies heavily on the teacher explaining the subject during the lesson and the students are given tasks and homework as a method of reviewing. The flipped classroom method will give the students a better understanding instead of the traditional one, while developing their soft skills, such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and independent learning.
