Curriculum and 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.

My Math: Children gain confidence in their math skills, while being challenged and inspired by real-world applications of math concepts. Research-based math strategies help children to develop their conceptual understanding, procedural skill, and math fluency, so they become skilled problem-solvers.

Handwriting Without Tears®: Originally designed by occupational therapists, this program demonstrates proper letter formation to facilitate handwriting skills. Through this program, we see improvements in letter size, spacing, and overall legibility, as handwriting becomes a simple, automatic skill.

In this classroom, children’s development is tracked across five key benchmarks*:
