the aim is to make the school fulfill a double function in being
both a model and a training school. An attempt is made to
keep abreast of the time in all that pertains to the interest of the
children who constitute the school. Special attention is given to
planning and execution, the keeping of records, and the general
management of the different grades. All work is done under
the general direction of the superintendent, who is the executive
of the department and under the immediate direction of the critic
teachers, who supervise and direct the work of the teachers.
The Course of study is continuous through the primary, intermediate,
and grammar grades. It does not differ materially from
the courses offered in any other graded school, except that an
attempt is made to better adjust the subject matter of the curriculum
to interests and needs of the pupils.
While the school exists primarily for the purpose of training
teachers, yet the principle is maintained that the interests of the
pupil shall receive the most consideration; and it is believed that
whatever advances the well-being of the child best serves the purpose
for which the school exists.
