Palos Verdes Estates District and Curriculum
The curriculum used in the schools of Palos Verdes Estates provides the guidelines for precisely what students must learn in their classes as well as the broader conceptual knowledge which students will gain. The curriculum is designed so that students deepen their abilities in the core academic subjects each year, using prior knowledge as a basis to gain more knowledge. This promotes the use of reflective thinking which aids in the development of other critical thinking skills.
In Language Arts, students are taught skills for decoding and analyzing texts, about the structure of language, and how to craft written expression. Students have opportunities for speaking and listening in discussions generated by literature and non-fiction texts. This basis in communication and literacy skills supports learning across all subjects.
