Curriculum & Developmental Benchmarks

Nationally recognized, award-winning, research-based educational curricula for children are featured in this program:

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Journeys: Designed for English language learners, as well as emerging, on-level, and advanced readers, this integrated language arts program has been proven to increase student achievement in the realm of literacy.

McGraw-Hill Everyday Mathematics®: This program is used by more than 4.3 million students and was developed by the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project. With research-based, field-tested strategies that explore basic and conceptual math thinking, this curriculum produces lifelong mathematical power in students.

Children develop the ability to count, by 1’s, up to 100.

Social Studies

This benchmark explores the sharing of personal family stories and traditions.


Investigations are performed, as children learn to make comparisons and recognize differences between forces, objects, etc.

Self-Help & Social Skills
