Mundo Verde Overview
Mundo Verde is a Tier 1 school dedicated to both education for sustainability and Spanish-English biliteracy. We serve one of the most diverse group of PreK-fifth grade students in the District. Mundo Verde uses Expeditionary Learning, a model that promotes self- discovery and critical thinking, encourages teamwork, builds character, and capitalizes on children’s innate spirit of adventure through hands-on, project-based learning. Our social curriculum utilizes the Responsive Classroom approach, based on the premise that children learn best when they have both academic and social-emotional skills. We believe that everyone benefits from the inclusion of students with disabilities in the general education classroom.
Our staff is part of a caring team of lifelong learners who seek to enhance their practice, build a strong community, and support student growth. They are leaders bringing about significant and lasting change in the classroom and school by: embodying the Responsive Classroom philosophy; embracing and fostering inclusion and upholding high expectations for all, and developing and executing meaningful learning expeditions and student fieldwork.
4th and 5th-grade bilingual math teachers are members of the academic and grade level teams. Educators manage three cohorts of 20-24 students. 4th-5th grades are departmentalized into Spanish Language Arts, English Language Arts and Bilingual Math. Some classrooms may have a Special Education co-teacher. Lead teachers report to the Principal.
