Curriculum

Our curriculum is based on the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. The School’s curriculum coordinator works with each teacher to determine curriculum goals and develops an outline for the year. The coordinator and teacher meet throughout the year to review the curriculum and update as needed. The coordinator also ensures that the teachers are implementing the appropriate Curriculum Framework goals, based on the individual needs and IEP of each student. The curriculum department oversees student MCAS preparation and testing, and submission of MCAS portfolios. Our goal is to implement a curriculum that focuses on the individual needs and IEP of each student while following the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks.
