ACADEMICS

CURRICULUM | GRADE LEVEL BENCHMARKS

Our faculty, under the guidance of the School Leadership Team, selects key content benchmarks aligned to the California Common Core State Standards and California Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. The benchmarks are also aligned to the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards for California).

The progress that students are making toward achieving these rigorous standards is communicated to parents via regular progress reports and standards based report cards at all grade levels at the end of each trimester. These report cards are aligned to the district’s grade level key benchmarks.
