Curriculum

We instill in our students the importance of education, and we aim to help them in every way we can to enjoy learning. We have designed our curriculum to encourage the maximum progression of all of our wonderful students. Please take a moment to see what our school has to offer as we help prepare them for the future!


 

Academic Standards

 

Arizona is working to implement new standards in English language arts and in mathematics, called Arizona’s College & Career Ready Standards that will ensure your child has the academic knowledge and skills to be successful in college, career and life. Academic standards set the expectation for what students need to know and be able to do in each grade and subject. They form the foundation of what teachers teach and students learn in the classroom.

The new standards are important because they will not only improve what your child learns, but how he learns by teaching critical-thinking, problem solving, and effective communication skills. They will also better prepare your child to compete for the jobs of the future with students from around the world.

The new standards and future assessments will also be consistent across states, which means that as families move to a new state or to a new school district, their teachers will be able to better assess your child’s abilities and know where he may need support in a way that is not possible now.

Even though Arizona's College & Career Ready Standards curriculum is embedded into the teaching of all subjects, teachers will still be following the other set state curriculum standards for each subject matter. Check out a listing of all state standards.

Assessments

Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) are measures that help teachers and schools determine how K-6 students are performing on important reading skills. To learn more, please read the Parent Guide to DIBELS Assessment.
