Elementary School Curriculum Overview
Elementary school students are provided with a strong foundation in the four core areas of mathematics, English language arts, science, and social studies each day. The curriculum for each grade level is reviewed in a curriculum cycle to ensure alignment to Pennsylvania State Standards. In addition, curricular units are developed through the use of curriculum committees comprised of teachers, specialists, and administrators with the goal that students in each grade level will leave the grade with the same base of knowledge. Students are assessed using common assessments and are graded using a standards-based report card in kindergarten that has been aligned to the revised Pennsylvania Academic Standards and with letter grades in 1st-4th. However, 1st-4th grades are currently going through the development process of transitioning to standards-based grading. Full implementation is projected for the 2019-2020 school year. In addition to core content areas, students also receive instruction in the special areas, which include Art, Business/Computers, Physical Education, and Mandarin.
