Basic Subjects

Teachers of Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies provide core curriculum instruction. Each subject area builds specific skills and strategies which students can then transfer to other areas and apply to "real world" situations.

 

Language Arts emphasize reading and writing skills as well as literature and study strategies
 

Mathematics helps students learn estimation, classification, patterns and functions, probability, graphing and statistics, number sentences and word problems. Geometry, measurement, division, decimals, fractions, and percentages are also emphasized.
 

Science includes a comprehensive, hands-on study of life sciences in grade seven and the study of physical sciences in grade eight. 
 

Social Studies focuses on geography, history, economics, political science, culture and human behavior.
