Our K-5 elementary schools have a curriculum that emphasizes literacy skills. Teachers work to provide a strong basis in reading and writing to insure success at the secondary level and beyond. Critical thinking, creativity, communication skills, and technology integration are woven throughout the language arts, math, science and social studies areas. In addition, students receive art, music and physical education classes weekly.
At the primary level, the District curriculum is also developmentally appropriate. This means that teachers meet each student where they are, and take them to their optimal learning level. Lessons address varied interests, needs and abilities. The development of each child’s confidence as a learner is also an important part of the teaching and learning that occurs at the elementary level.
