The English School District follows the curriculum frameworks established by the Newfoundland Department of Education. The English Program Curriculum Guides provide educators with grade-specific outcomes that students should achieve in order to be proficient in the subject. The guides build year to year along major strands in a subject, such as biology and chemistry in Science, so that students are continually building on a base of knowledge. At the high school level, students also have a wider number of academic and career-related options for how they wish to specialize their education.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mount Pearl District Curriculum
The Math curriculum contains a series of general and specific learning outcomes for students to meet in each topic of math. Elementary students learn the fundamentals of problem-solving and then move on to more complex multi-step problems. In high school, for grades 10-12, the math curriculum is based on the more complex skills involved in Measurement, Trigonometry, Roots and Powers, Factors and Products, Relations and Functions, Linear Functions, and Systems of Linear Equations.
The English Language Arts curriculum is organized around reading and viewing, speaking and listening, and writing and representing. These distinct literacy skills are taught in an integrated fashion so that students can speak and listen about what they have been reading, writing or seeing, and approach these topics in an analytic manner. The reading and viewing strand covers comprehension and analysis skills used in reading both fiction and non-fiction. It also includes objectives for the acquisition of vocabulary and grammar skills.

Chalk Talk: Independent Learning
One of the goals of the curriculum is for students to develop independence in their learning abilities. Even at a young age, children are capable of being independent learners, although they may need some assistance in terms of finding or obtaining the right books or materials for what they want to learn. As students get older, they have more options for finding ways to learn about something new. Interest may be sparked by information they see at school or in the community and they may ask to take enrichment classes in a subject not available at their school. They also have more library resources that they can use to learn more about a topic. In high school, students can take on an Independent Study which demonstrates their resourcefulness and independent scholarship. For such projects, often taking an interdisciplinary approach can help students see how different areas of knowledge connect to each other.
