Evaluating What We Teach
Our curriculum is constantly being re-evaluated, enhanced, and improved in order to ensure our students are learning the things they will need for success in school and in life.
Every year our staff carefully assesses the learning expectations for students, as well as the methods being used to teach the necessary skills. This curriculum review is a multi-year process that provides time for teachers to carefully study and evaluate the curriculum, review innovative new strategies along with proven best practices, and ensure what is being taught aligns with state, federal and local standards.
