Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Garden City District Curriculum
The district’s curriculum models state and national common core curriculum standards. Through differentiated instruction and a critical thinking focus, a strong foundation in reading, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies is built. In middle school, students may take advanced courses in English, mathematics, and science as well as numerous electives in orchestra, band, music, fine arts, and performing arts.
The Freshman Academy follows a Learning Community concept, continuing to assist students in the mastery of core curriculum while providing multiple elective opportunities. Individualized attention is given to students needing remediation or enrichment, and staff work to bond with all students to learn their interests and help them select a career path. Once students graduate from the Freshman Academy, they may follow one of three high school paths of learning: School of Arts and Communication, School of Trade and Health Sciences, or School of Public Service.

Chalk Talk: Being Your Child’s Biggest Advocate
No one knows your child like you do, so as s/he progresses through school, it is important that you do everything necessary to ensure that your child’s unique needs are addressed by the educational system. First, create a good relationship with their teachers, as these are the people who spend the majority of the day with your child. Learn the curriculum and the expectations that will be placed on your child and work at home daily to reemphasize what is being taught during the day. Volunteer in the classroom when possible to see what occurs in your child’s class so you know the type of learning environment and how the teacher interacts with his/her students. Most importantly, if your child is struggling or is excelling far beyond what is being taught, discuss your concerns with the teacher and school specialists to determine what best can be done to meet their needs. Schools have many resources to assist your child, and it is your duty to ensure they are utilized. By being a presence in the school and insisting on personalized instruction and differentiation for your child, s/he will feel success in learning.
