Arlington Schools give students an education that helps them become productive citizens after graduation. By using the Common Core State Standards as their foundation for a curriculum they are able to create an educational plan that will serve each student well. Beginning in elementary school, students are shown the importance of good reading skills.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Arlington District Curriculum
These schools also use Accelerated Reading to help students progress beginning at the reading level that they are at. By middle school. Students are ready to move on to novel studies to open the students’ eyes to the worlds that reading can open to them. When they are in high school the students can choose to study different classes in literature. Some of the classes focus on US literature while others focus on literature from around the world.
Science is included with other subject matter, in the early years. Science may be seen in the different seasons as children learn their calendar skills. As they progress through higher grades science is studied on its own. At this time students learn laboratory investigations along with the critical thinking that is required of a scientist. They begin to make explorations, do research, work in groups and present projects. This readies them for high school when they will go into topics that are more in-depth, such as ecology, anatomy and physiology or chemistry.

Chalk Talk: Fourth Grade Thinkers
By fourth grade, children have developed many different thinking skills. However, this does not stop at this age. By the end of this school years students will be able to classify items by different characteristics at the same time. So they will be able to sort toys by size and shape simultaneously. They are also able to understand different features in a problem. So even if they are faced by addition and/or subtraction in a math equations they become less confused than previously. They also are able to reverse their thinking to check their conclusions. If it is incorrect, they are able to reverse the steps taken to come up with a new conclusion. These thinkers are also less egocentric than previously. They now are able to realize that others have different perspectives. The skills that these thinkers come up with this year are just the beginning of how they progress through the coming years.
