Specialist Teachers

Students at Northrop Community School receive a well-rounded and challenging education, in part due to the specialist areas that are an integral piece of the overall curriculum.  Beginning in kindergarten, students are educated by specialist teachers in the areas of visual arts, music, STEM (science/technology/engineering/mathematics) and physical education.

From kindergarten through 5th grade, students are exposed to and taught foundational skills in each area and are challenged to continually build on their skills, knowledge, and creativity.  In each specialist area, there are unique projects, programs, and featured events that highlight students’ learning.  We have the Science Night in the Winter, and Field Day and Music Concerts in the Spring.   Student artwork fill the halls of Northrop throughout the year and student artwork is featured on the cover and as inserts in the students' yearbook.
