Elementary School Curriculum

Elementary students focus on seven main subjects: mathematics, foundational literacy, integrated literacy, units of study writing, physical education, art and music.

Find a brief description – by grade level – of what to expect in each area.


 

Report Cards

Our elementary schools use standards-based grading to report student progress three times per year. This means identifying specific learning standards in each grade, and then using a score of 1 to 4 to indicate how well a student is meeting the expectation for that standard at a given point in the school year. For example, a score of 3 is always defined as a student meeting the end-of-year grade level expectation for that standard, without support.
