Our Lower Elementary group consists of students from 5-7 years old.
They focus on building a strong understanding of number sense and logic as they learn basic math skills.
They learn to spell and read using phonograms and spelling rules. All of our students start with cursive.
Other classes they take include Science, Character, Citizenship, and Culture. In Music class they learn to play desk bells, xylophone, and boom whackers. Active play is a must!
Upper Elementary students are 8-10 years old. They continue strengthening their Math, Reading, and Writing skills, while enhancing their language skills with basic Latin and Grammar. They study Texas History and World Explorers, as well as more advanced Sciences. They begin learning how to organize their thoughts into storytelling and writing. They continue their Music education with the recorder and ukulele. Physical activity includes an introduction to sports and learning how to play well as a team.
Our Middle School group includes students who are 11-13 years old. They move forward into more challenging Math, including Algebra. They continue with advanced Grammar and Writing, and begin reading and analyzing classic books. Students will take a full Government course, along with US History, and World Cultures and Religions. All middle school students take Spanish as their foreign language. They also begin their Exploration classes, which function as a variety of short-term elective courses.
High School students are 15-18 years old. We encourage them to enroll in dual credit courses with Lone Star College early on and take the balance of their courses on campus. We follow the State of Texas Graduation Requirements, and so our high school students are offered the required coursework. They also participate in Exploration classes. They have the privilege of participating in the mandatory Life Skills Training Course, as well Career Navigation and Civic Engagement events.

Four Student Houses
Houses provide a special opportunity for students to learn how to work together, look out for each other, set goals together, and build strong bonds of trust and friendship. Each new student is assigned to a house in which they stay for the duration of their tenure at Traditions Education. The houses are named after four historically significant patriots who emulate the four cornerstones of our Mission Statement.
