Elementary Curriculum Overviews
The curriculum at the elementary school level includes: English language arts (reading, writing, listening, and speaking), mathematics, science, and social studies. The keystone to our elementary program is a balanced literacy approach that emphasizes the acquisition of a scope and sequence of skills and strategies within the context of reading and writing to ensure that our students become lifelong learners and problem solvers. A developmental guidance curriculum is taught by counselors at all grade levels. Beyond the regular day, the elementary schools have a co-curricular program that includes special area teachers in art, vocal music, instrumental music, specialized curricular areas, health and physical education, speech therapy and English as a second language. Instructional assistants support teaching efforts in many ways. All classrooms are equipped with networked computers, projectors, and document cameras for enrichment in language arts and mathematics.
