The West Cobb News Room enables our students to explore the media world with a real video camera and a communication system which involves all of the classrooms. Whether leading the pledge of allegiance, forecasting today’s weather, or announcing the special menu of the day, our children increase their self-esteem as they explore the job of a real newscaster.
INTERNATIONAL FARMERS MARKET
Children will explore this old-world style market where real groceries and shopping carts are found. Scales and balances are used to weigh various produce to study scientific methods, and a hands-on approach to such mathematical concepts such as counting money and coins and making change are the focus.
FOREIGN LANGUAGE ROOM
West Cobb Prep offers proficiency-based Spanish and Mandarin program. Students are therefore exposed to all aspects of foreign language, from listening and speaking to reading and writing. We provide more than just exposure to a second language, our programs inspire students to engage and understand the cultures and traditions of other cultures. The language classes are taught exclusively in the language and incorporate songs, poems, and children’s books used by native speakers. Through this exploration of language, students are able to communicate meaningfully and effectively in a globalized world.
Our floor to ceiling mirrors and ballet bar are a must as the children explore ballet, jazz, and tap. Our dance program stimulates cognitive, social, and large motor growth builds the children’s esteem as they perform at their semi-yearly dance recitals.
