Friendship Armstrong is home to our Reggio Emilia Learning Center, which uses art, nature, literature, dramatic play, language, writing, and music to spark students’ intellect, creativity, and self-confidence.
Named after the area in Italy where the concept was developed, Reggio Emilia is an early-learning model that has earned worldwide acclaim. Friendship continues to develop this learning approach by combining the creative process of Reggio with our rigorous early-education curriculum, which incorporates culturally responsive learning tools and new technology into every classroom.
Guided by a community of seasoned and supportive teachers, Armstrong students build strong foundations in mathematics, science, social studies, English, and language arts while developing the skills essential to high achievement such as hard work, critical thinking, problem solving, and teamwork.
Equally important, Armstrong’s on-campus Parent Center ensures that our most valuable learning partners – our parents – are consistent figures in our classrooms and at extended-learning and after-school events.
