Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lloyd District Curriculum
The high school curriculum adheres to the NYSED’s initiative to prepare all students for post-secondary education and work. To graduate, students must earn credits in the following subjects: English language arts, social studies, mathematics, science, foreign languages, health, art/music, physical education, and electives. Highland High School also prepares students through career and technical training, advanced placement (AP) coursework, and guidance for various collegiate exams. Students learn about fitness as well. To improve overall fitness, students are required to devise an exercise regimen for outside of school.
All students learn about technology, both in terms of its impact on society but also through courses on programming and web design. Students develop an understanding of the influence that social media has on today’s culture, and learn ways to protect themselves from harm when using social media and other modern technologies. Students also learn about the various ways in which technology has made information more easily accessible and more easily disseminated. This also affords students an opportunity to learn about digital citizenship and learn what they need to do in order to protect themselves from harm when utilizing technology.

Chalk Talk: Expectations of an Arts Curriculum
Students have the opportunity to explore their artistic side through the visual and performing arts curriculum. Students from kindergarten through high school can participate in music. Elementary school learners explore the basic components of music, such as remembering words, matching rhythm, and maintaining a steady beat. Identifying patterns in music is also emphasized, such that students can improve their ability to sing or play along. Once students reach middle school, they explore multiple instruments in order to determine which one suits their interests the best. Middle school learners also work on improving their ability to read and perform music. In high school, musicians clarify their understanding of musical notations and symbols. They also explore the aesthetic components of music, such as varying the volume and meter of a performance piece.
