Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gulf Hills District Curriculum
Gulf Hills schools encourage students to begin thinking about what they are reading from the beginning. In the early education years, students are taught to share their favorite book and author along with their reasoning behind their choice. This is the first step in evaluating reading selections. They proceed by finding characters, settings, and the voice that the author uses. By the upper grades, these same students are able to dissect a book and find these items with ease, but they are also able to express if they agree or disagree with the author and explain why they feel this way.
Mathematics has a foundation in counting, so this is one of the first skills that children are taught. They then are taught how to use these numbers in equations, such as single-digit addition or subtraction. This foundation is built upon by adding more digits plus multiplication and division. From the basis of counting, the high school student can use the knowledge they have gained and face subjects such as algebra, trigonometry or even calculus and succeed.

At this age the most common forms taught deal with words that have a consonant, vowel and then a consonant, like the word cat. Soon students begin to learn blends like the sound that the letters gl make. This continues until the students are able to look at a word with many syllables in it, take it apart and know what the word is.
