Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Downey District Curriculum

In Language Arts, the curriculum focuses on reading strategies for multiple text forms and places strong emphasis on the skills of writing. The development of a writing process and strategies for vocabulary acquisition are central to the curriculum. The curriculum in Math starts by developing a number sense in children and then follows that with increasingly complex topics in algebra, geometry and data analysis at grade appropriate levels. In the Sciences, students learn the skills and fundamental principles involved in biology, chemistry, earth and environmental science, and are prepared to tackle complex physics and engineering courses.

This curriculum model helps students develop critical thinking skills like interpretation, reasoning and problem-solving. Each year, students are required to use what they have already learned to gain a deeper understanding of their subjects. This use of prior knowledge allows students the chance to reflect which prompts critical thought.
