Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Foster City District Curriculum

In the subject of Language Arts, communication and literacy skills are at the heart of student learning. There is a focus on writing processes, writing goals and consideration of audience, and upon other communication skills. Through the topics of geometry, algebra, and data analysis, students develop a wide range of quantitative and logical reasoning and problem-solving strategies in math.

The Science curriculum focuses on the processes and principles of scientific inquiry within different different scientific fields like biology, chemistry, physics, environmental science and technological innovation. Upon entering a small learning community or magnet program, the curriculum serves to forward the goals of the learning environment through the specific learning expectations students will meet.
