Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Atherton District Curriculum

All students receive instruction in the core subjects of Language Arts, Math, Science, History and Social Studies, and Foreign Languages. Each subject imparts a range of thinking skills that students will use in college and career goals. The model is for a skills and strategy-based focus for instruction which is assessed on standardized tests given across California. Although a focus is the development of skills, procedural and content knowledge, teachers are able to use many instructional approaches like project-based work, group learning, or experiential learning to achieve these goals.

A major focus of the schools is on technology and how it can be used to enhance learning and give students an opportunity to create. It is through the analytic skills that students develop in Language Arts, and the problem-solving skills developed in Math, and the process-oriented thinking learned in Science that students have the tools necessary to accomplish their goals.

Atherton District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The curriculum used in the districts of Atherton is designed to put all students on a path of being college-ready upon graduation. The goal is to establish a foundation of knowledge by building skills in each subject at each grade level. The elementary curriculum introduces students to a wide range of topics within a subject and while in high school the classes are more specific and require the use of skills gained at the elementary and middle school level.

We currently cover the following Atherton-area school district: Los Lomitas Elementary School District, Menlo Park City School District, Redwood City School District, Sequoia Union High School District.
