Curriculum & Instruction

Curriculum & Instruction

The core curriculum focuses on the results of learning. It is designed to meet student needs by providing a strong foundation in basic skills for life and work success. The curriculum is aligned with state core curriculum guidelines, the Kent County Collaborative Core Curriculum (KC4) for math, science, social studies, language arts, and our own school improvement goals. Instructional resources are carefully chosen to support curriculum standards.

Technology, tutorials, supplemental courses, co-curricular, consortia, summer, and community service programs also support the core curriculum.

Students are expected to demonstrate proficiency in language arts (reading writing, speaking, listening, and literature), mathematics, social studies, science, health, physical education, fine arts, technology, character education, business, and foreign language education.
