Conway District and Curriculum
Horry County schools seek to “advance knowledge of, and professional practice in, teaching and learning.” They have the goal of meeting the diverse needs off all students and helping them to become life-long learners. In order to do this successfully the Horry County Public Schools have implemented the Common Core State Standards in math and English Language Arts.
We currently cover the following Conway-area school district: Horry County Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Conway District Curriculum
English Language Arts students practice reading a variety of texts including both non-fiction and literature. They learn the ability to synthesize what they read, as well as to communicate effectively through writing. Students build literacy and communication skills that translate into other content areas, such as science and social studies, as well as into college and career opportunities.
The Math curriculum is different from the past in that students study fewer standards in a given year, but with greater focus. They master each concept with greater depth over a longer duration so that they do not have to continually revisit it year after year. The goal is for students to have a firm grasp on their studies and retain it over the long term. Beginning in elementary school, students learn about different shapes and develop their spatial awareness; this is then drawn upon in their middle and high school geometry classes.

Chalk Talk: School Readiness
There are many factors to consider when deciding whether or not to start your child in school. First and foremost, you should consider the age of your child; parents whose children have summer birthdays have more options about timing as they can usually choose to wait an extra year. You must also consider the child’s emotional ability. School days can be long; if a child is not emotionally prepared they may develop a negative perception of school. Determine your child’s social ability. Are they as mature as other children that will be in the same grade? Finally, look at their academic ability, even kindergarten teachers have certain expectations of skills your child should possess. If you have any doubts, talk to the teachers and principal at the school your child will enter. Remember, it is better to wait to begin school than to have to retain your child in the future.
