Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Burien District Curriculum

The curriculum in elementary school follows a logical path from kindergarten through fifth grade. Students practice important skills in reading, writing and math that will prepare them for middle school, high school, and career or college beyond high school. Students in the elementary school classrooms in the district learn phonics, writing styles, number sense, arithmetic, and many other important skills. The science curriculum focuses on investigation and experimentation, and begins to add content to science in third grade so that students understand how to work with their hypotheses.

Middle and high school coursework allows the students to continue to develop foundational skills while modifying their curriculum to fit their needs. Students in middle and high school are allowed to take advanced classes in Math and English, in addition to electives in both subjects. Composition classes, Algebra, Geometry and Biology are all required classes for high school students. Most of the additional graduation requirements can be satisfied through elective as well as Advanced Placement classes in the curricular area.

Burien District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

Highline School District is in the process of integrating the Common Core State Standards into all of its K-12 classrooms. In doing so, students are becoming career and college ready. The district is still covering the Washington State Standards while phasing in the Common Core State Standards. Additionally, teachers encourage students to investigate and explore academic areas of interest, which fosters a love of learning. Learning activities also focus on the needs of the 21st century, and as such, promote the acquisition of effective collaborative and communication skills that students will need as they pursue higher education or a career.

We currently cover the following Burien-area school district: Highline Public Schools.

Keeping Informed: Recent Burien Educational News

  • Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services - The district is one of the few in the state that offers a comprehensive deaf and hard of hearing service to families in Washington. The program is staffed with ASL certified teachers, an ASL certified counselor, and an ASL certified psychologist. They use district-adopted curriculum with necessary modifications and supply interpreters to students for classes and extracurricular activities. Parents are also able to attend a monthly parent support group supported by this program.
  • Realistic Transition Program - Many times, high school students getting ready to graduate either have no plan for what to do after high school, or a highly unrealistic view of what life will be like after high school. This program shows students viable options for what to do with their high school diploma and what steps to take before and after graduation to make sure they are able to meet their goals.
  • AVID - AVID is a program that helps students who are college bound, but may need some additional academic support to make it a reality. The program often serves students who will be the first in their family to attend college. Many districts offer this program, but what makes it unique in this district is that they begin the program in elementary school. This allows students to begin thinking about college early on and ensures they make the right academic and personal decisions to get there.

Chalk Talk: Improving Children’s Communication Skills

Children may be timid when among other children. There are ways to help the child overcome this. First, talk with the child to see where they think this shyness comes from. This opens up the communication door so the child will feel comfortable coming to the parent for other problems. Perhaps they are seen as too aggressive, making others stay away. If this is the case host a one child playdate and help the child learn how to behave like a good playmate. Some children are shy around others they do not know well. To help this child make trips to a park or playground where other children will be. Then encourage them to ask others to play, or if others ask them encourage them to accept. Other ways to help is to have the child ask another child over, see if there is a day camp that would interest the child.
