Our Curriculum

Category: Curriculum

The curriculum at the school is designed to promote complete student achievement of the new Florida Standards, the Florida’s New Generation Standards/Competency Based Curriculum in the core subject areas of Language Arts, Reading, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. Our school also offers special area classes in Spanish, Art, Music and Physical Education. All subjects are driven through the use of research-based instructional textbooks and materials and supplemented by a wide variety of educational technology programs.

The newly updated Florida Standards will help ensure that students are receiving a high quality education consistently from school to school. To achieve true mastery of Florida Standards, a Depth of Knowledge chart is used in implementing the curriculum, meaning that the range of rigor of the assessment items should reflect the rigor of the course content and instruction This level of rigor ensures that students are able to master the standards in all main subject areas, including Reading/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and Physical Education.
