Overview of Curriculum Departments
Specialized programs and rich and varied curriculum offerings for preschoolers through twelfth graders have characterized our schools for many years.
All our curriculum areas – English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies to name a few – include foundational concepts whose mastery is essential for a well-rounded education. The rigorous Learning Standards of the New York State Department of Education are included, of course, in all subject matter that is taught in White Plains. Assessments of our students’ performance in each of the curriculum areas, also mandated by the State, begin as early as third grade and continue through high school. For information on State assessments in grades 3, 4 and 5, click here: Information on curriculum, standards, and assessments is drawn from the New State Education Department website.
This section describes the major curricular areas in elementary, middle, and high school. For each curriculum area, you will find information about curriculum, NYS standards and assessments, important links and more.
