Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Highlands District Curriculum
The mathematics curriculum at Highlands schools helps students develop skills in every area of mathematics. During the early years, students learn about mathematical processes in number and operations, proportionality, mathematical expressions, equations, and relationships, and measurement and data. Additionally, a financial literacy strand has been introduced which helps students tie the subject to real world applications. In high school, students will be required to use all the skills mastered in middle school.
The science curriculum provides students the chance to work like scientists by working through questions and concepts using the scientific process. They learn how to demonstrate scientific reasoning, formulate and test hypotheses, communicate their observations, and design experiments. Topics include biology, earth and space science, physical science, environmental science, and concepts in engineering. High school courses cover all these topics and others such as aquatic science, chemistry, and integrated physics and chemistry.

Chalk Talk: Skills Acquired in Science Class
Parents may know, in general, what their children are learning about a science topic. There is more than what is learned from their textbook or a lab result. When in science class, children also learn different ways of gathering information: listening, observing, searching, inquiring, investigating, gathering and researching. They also learn how to organize information by recording, comparing, contrasting, classifying, outlining, reviewing, and evaluating. By planning or designing activities the child can also learn to be creative. Laboratory skills include the use and care of instruments, the careful setting up equipment, putting an experiment together and calibrating. Finally, as they learn to share their results with others they discover the importance of questions, discussions, explanations, reporting, accepting critiques and writing results. Each of these skills can be used throughout the child’s life.
