In elementary school, the curriculum focuses on establishing fundamental knowledge in each subject. During middle school, the curriculum transitions from fundamentals to more complex work. The district allows sixth graders to take pre-algebra if they show advanced skills and offers remedial instruction for students struggling in math and language arts. At each high school, students have many chances to prepare for life beyond twelfth grade among choices ranging from college preparatory courses to specialized career-related courses.
Students may take courses in art, computer education, engineering, English language arts, health, languages other than English, mathematics, music, occupational education (business, and family and consumer sciences), physical education, science, and social studies. Advanced Placement (AP) and college-level courses are available to students, as well. Staff provides students with support through academic intervention services (AIS) and special education resources. All graduation requirements meet the NYSED requirements.

Chalk Talk: The Multiple Intelligence Theory
The Multiple Intelligence Theory consists of eight intelligences: musical-rhythmic, visual-spatial, verbal-linguistic, logical-mathematical, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalistic. A person may exhibit intelligence in one or many areas, but to raise a smart child, it is important to provide opportunities to learn in all aspects. To do so, parents should expose their children to art, music, and dance. Getting involved in sports or rhythmic aerobics can hone musical, visual, and bodily intelligences. For interpersonal communication, help children begin and continue conversations; setting up interviews with friends and family members is a great way to grow interpersonal skills. Journaling, meditation, and scrapbooking may aid in sharpening intrapersonal skills. Exposing children to emotions and asking them about their own is a great way to keep them in-touch with themselves. Nature walks, trips to the zoo, and cloud watching can enhance their naturalistic intelligence. These escapades can also lead to learning about science, which will help with logical intelligence. For verbal and logical intelligence, using tools, like flashcards or tutoring can also give a child the practice they need to improve this area of intelligence.
