Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Tonawanda District Curriculum
In English and Language Arts, students are expected to focus on the basic progressive elements of reading, writing, listening, speaking and showing control of the English language. An emphasis is placed on being able to ask and answer questions about reading material, a skill which becomes more complex as students take on more difficult reading material in fiction and nonfiction.
In Math, students begin the process of becoming mathematically literate by learning the fundamentals of mathematical computation, measurement, and basic algebra and geometry. In high school students take Algebra and Geometry and can also take Algebra II, Calculus, Trigonometry, and Statistics. The curriculum for Math is concentrated on fundamental mathematical skills so that students can gain a deeper skill level in the material that is presented.
