Inspired by the world-renowned Reggio Emilia Approach to Education, KLA Elementary School encourages active learning and collaborative work through critical thinking and hands-on experiences. To that end, the state-of-the-art facility in Brickell was designed by a well-known architect and interior designer from Reggio Emilia, Italy, and features open and innovative spaces where children are able to be protagonists of their own learning process as they’re encouraged to move around and find inspiration in every corner of the school. The enrichment programs have been thoughtfully developed to challenge and inspire elementary-aged children. Through physical education, music, art, cooking, technology, engineering and more, students are exposed to a variety of experiences cultivated to enhance and encourage critical thinking through differentiated instruction.
