The teachers at Mary Immaculate Catholic School employ a variety of instructional techniques to ensure the success of each student. Teachers consider individual learning styles and varied development levels when choosing instructional methods. Active and involved learning takes place in all subject areas through the use of manipulatives, cooperative exercises, learning centers, and other visual, auditory, and kinesthetic components. A strong emphasis is placed on cross grade level and cross curriculum cooperative learning and interaction, which develop leadership, self-esteem, cooperative skills, and team building.
