Curriculum and Developmental Scales

The HighScope educational philosophy provides the foundation for our Young Achievers™ curriculum. Active learning is the defining element of the HighScope approach—giving students direct, hands-on experiences with materials, people and ideas—along with the Plan-Do-Review process. Meanwhile, children work toward milestones across 10 development scales, through customized lessons generated from our digital lesson planning tool.
