Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Port Chester District Curriculum
Port Chester offers a Languages Other Than English program that allows students to learn a second language. This curriculum prepares students to be speakers, listeners, readers, and writers of a new language by helping them devise basic to advanced skills. The beginnings of learning a new language focus on developing an understanding of basic words and phrases, including the names of the days and months. Beginning students engage in very basic conversations that use repetition in order to cement word meaning and phraseology in the students’ memories.
The arts curriculum in Port Chester affords students many opportunities to discover their creativity. Students explore the various processes that are required for the performance and participation in the arts, including dance. Dancers participate in formal and informal contexts in order to acquire the ability to follow set dance forms, as well as develop improvisational skills. Choreography is a large part of the dance curriculum, in which students devise routines that include various dance movements and sequences.

Chalk Talk: Pros and Cons of Late Start
Some school districts have implemented a late start – a school day that begins as much as an hour later than the traditional 8:00 am start time – in order to improve academic performance and student attitudes at the high school level. Research shows that students at high schools with a later start time indeed have higher grades in core areas of math, English, social studies, and science. Standardized test scores are also higher on average at high schools with a later start time. Attendance is up at these schools as well, while discipline referrals are down. However, there are some drawbacks to later school days. Families that have children at other schools with a traditional start time may experience difficulties in getting their children to school. Similarly, with high schools in session well beyond when elementary and middle schools release for the day, transportation issues again arise. High school students that have sports practice or after-school jobs are also committed to those duties later into the evening, which may impact time with family and homework time.
