Armenian language, history and religion form an integral part of the school curriculum. Mastery of the Armenian alphabet, along with its phonetic characteristics, word formation, spelling, basic grammar, composition and fluent reading form the basis of instruction in elementary grades.
Performances of Armenian patriotic poems, songs and plays in the classroom, during assemblies and public Armenian holiday celebrations enrich the program. Projects, posters, pictures, objects and maps help students learn and appreciate the culture, tradition and values of their ancestors. Armenian history and religion are essential components of the elementary Armenian program, giving students a sense of their Armenian identity as well as the importance of values and moral development.
