The curriculum serves as a living document that can continually evolve in response to student and societal needs. With skills such as communication, collaboration, and active participation and authentic real-world experiences embedded, Colonial's course offerings foster skills and attitudes that enable children to think critically, creatively, and constructively – and give our students the tools they need to be ready for college and a career.
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.
