The name of a school typically tells a story, which is certainly the case at Compositive Primary. So much so that our name conveys the school’s fundamental beliefs about learning and the transformational impact we have on the lives of children and their families.
The word’s root is composition, meaning we are all connected to each other. This characterizes our school community and our belief in whole child education; we educate children’s cognitive, emotional, social, and physical lives.
The second half of the word is positive, expressing our recognition that children thrive in a positive and wholesome environment. Our approach to learning is strength-based, meaning we help children discover, develop, and build upon their strengths, interests, talents, and passions. We achieve this by looking for the positive in each other.
The Compositive Model organizes learning into Domains and Capacities in an inquiry-based model that nurtures children’s natural curiosity, encourages self-directed discovery, and celebrates the joy of learning.
At Compositive, our commitment is to know, understand, care for, and advance the learning and development of each child. Our goal is to change the educational landscape through our research-based model, anchored in the neuroscience of learning, to inspire children and transform education.
We appreciate your interest in Compositive Primary and hope we have piqued your curiosity about our school.
