Experience-oriented learning describes our approach to academics. Tower Hill Primary school teachers believe that children learn best through active exploration. Field trips, cooking, nature exploration and more enrich the academic experience. We are a hands-on, learn by doing school. Multi-sensory strategies are used to address the many learning styles of our students.
