The Curriculum Department features a team of content supervisors who have the “big picture” view and can make sure that concepts are covered in a relevant way and that the curriculum builds effectively from year-to-year – offering our students all the academic skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in the future.
OUR CORE BELIEFS
- Excellence can be achieved by all students.
- Instructional and assessment tasks are at the heart of the teaching-learning process. Therefore, ongoing assessment is an integral part of both the curriculum and instruction and assists students in meeting and exceeding the standard.
- To tap the full intelligence and learning potential of all students, a curriculum must be a coherent organized set of instructional opportunities that allow for tiered student learning.
- To make learning meaningful for all students, the curriculum must go beyond traditional resources and actively involve students in real-life experiences. With this model, children may find meaning in their learning and connect and apply learning to new situations.
- Curriculum provides connections with home and community experiences and maximizes students learning conditions.
- The curriculum must develop independent responsibility as well as a sense of responsibility to others.
- The curriculum is a process that continually defines and redefines experiences students have in learning situations. Therefore, it is viewed as an on-going process that is every teacher’s responsibility.
