Penfield’s English Language Arts curriculum seeks to develop students that are prepared to take their places as citizens of the world in the 21st Century. English Language Arts instruction focuses not only on reading and writing, but also on speaking, listening, and language skills. The curriculum also teaches literacy in subjects such as social studies, technology, and science and the schools offer students a wide range of career-oriented classes and instruction that are designed to prepare students for their college and careers goals.
Penfield’s math curriculum is designed to develop students who have a firm grasp of the most important core mathematics concepts, and who can apply their knowledge of those concepts to real world problems. Students are introduced to the core concepts in the earliest grades, and then go on to gain a broader understanding of those concepts and how to apply those concepts as they move up grade-by-grade.

Chalk Talk: Beyond the Three R's
Traditionally, educators have spoken of the “Three Rs,” or reading, writing, and arithmetic, but in a changing world, traditions much change, too. The demands of today’s schools and workplaces are far too complex to be served by a curriculum that does not includes science, technology, and the arts in its core classes. As schools are likely to continue to continue focusing on the “Three Rs”—the subjects that appear most often on statewide tests—parents will have to pick up the slack. Parents should teach children how to really use technology for learning, not just use it to play games. They should help children understand the science that is happening around them all the time. Finally, parents should encourage exploring the arts, and remind children that creativity doesn’t just happen on pieces of paper and museum walls. Creativity is a part of everything they do and every problem they solve.
