This curriculum is intended to prepare students for college and career and sets clear, rigorous expectations for the work students should complete, and the knowledge they should gain, by the completion of each academic year. Students who fall behind grade level are given support and interventions, and students who progress beyond grade level are given advanced work.

Chalk Talk: Community College vs. State College
There are many positives to community colleges that some students may not have considered. Many of the instructors are community colleges are adjuncts, which means they teach part time, often while working within their fields. This can mean that students have access to experts who are familiar with current practices. This is especially true in the arts. Community colleges are much cheaper than state colleges, but one drawback is that community colleges only offer basic-level classes, so students have to transfer eventually. Classes tend to be much smaller at community colleges, especially when considering that the basic-level classes offered are the same ones almost everyone has to take, so they can get quite full at a state college. The curriculum at a community college and a state college are both mandated by the state, so the quality of education shouldn’t differ tremendously.
