Drexel Hill District and Curriculum
Upper Darby School District offers academic courses conforming to state requirements, especially making sure exams and benchmarks tests are taken to ensure the progress of its students in grades k-12. Darby schedules four large exams per year on math and, after kindergarten, reading through 5th grade. Common Core Standards encompassing Math and Language Arts cover the core topics in each subject and detail what students should learn and be able to do at each grade level.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Drexel Hill District Curriculum
Students are required to take MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) tests covering Math, Reading, and Science along with PSSA (Pennsylvania System of School Assessment) for 6th through 8th grade. High school students take MAP and Keystone exams through 11th grade followed by their senior projects in 12th grade which replace the exams. With these basic evaluations, Upper Darby School District focuses on making sure their students have all the tools they need to succeed not only in Core subjects covered by these exams, but also in the areas of the arts, technology studies, finances and economics, health classes, physical education classes, world languages and more.
The Upper Darby School District also accommodates students with special needs, gifted students, and English Language Learners (ELLs). With students who have not grown up speaking English as their mother tongue, such English classes can be invaluable in equipping students with the knowledge they need to learn more effectively in the classroom.

Chalk Talk: Why Studying Math Is Important
Some students love math, but many struggle in math class and don’t always look forward to the math learning process. So why is it beneficial? Math encourages problem solving skills and thinking outside of the box. While it follows specific rules, sometimes those rules are illusive or difficult to apply. Math is its own language. It is a language that is used to write down laws such as those that are found in the sciences. Because math is so interconnected with other subjects, sometimes it can be difficult to disentangle them. But basic math skills can help you from basic activities such as going to the grocery store to specific tasks in a job such as engineering or accounting. It can help you even in artistic subjects where critical thinking is required. For these reasons and many more, while not always easy or pleasant, math can help you in your everyday life and studies.
