Engage NY is our standards based math program. All of our teaching approaches in mathematics continue to evolve as we participate in ongoing professional development and reflect on classroom-based teacher research. The Common Core Learning Standards set forth by New York State guide our planning.
Social Studies is taught through the use of non-fiction and historical fiction to bring multiple perspectives of events in our world to students. We incorporate the Investigation Method (IIM) which trains students in the research process as they are learning Social Studies concepts.
Our curriculum also incorporates the Arts. Students of grades 4 and 5 can choose to be a part of the Band. Chorus is available for students in grades 3 through 5. Violin is provided to grade 1 students and Violin Club is open to students in grades 2-5. All 4th and 5th grade students participate in Ballroom Dance provided by The American Ballroom Theatre Company and a Recorder program is implemented in grades 2 and 3.
