Educating Our Parents: Understanding the San Francisco District Curriculum

The Science curriculum uses a similar framework in which students gain rudimentary skills and many opportunities to investigate scientific concepts during their elementary grades leading to more focused coursework in high school. Students in high school are expected to learn about topics such as biodiversity and genetics in Biology, or chemical reactions and bonds in Chemistry. Once students have taken courses in these subjects, they moves towards Physics and areas of specialization such as Environmental Science, Astronomy, Oceanography, and pre-Engineering.

The Reading/Language Arts curriculum provides students with an education in literacy and communication that looks beyond literature and encompasses areas of non-fiction that support learning in other subjects. The curriculum places emphasis on the development of writing skills, and students will be expected to have processes for writing that include editing and revising.

San Francisco District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The process for teaching and learning in San Francisco Unified’s schools is explained through the California Content Standards, a comprehensive framework for subject-area learning. The core and enrichment subjects offered to students throughout their school years are detailed based on the knowledge, concepts, and thinking strategies students need to master on a grade-by-grade basis. The knowledge builds upon itself, starting with a broad base in elementary school and follows up with deeper level of analytic understanding in the content areas during high school.

The Content Standards for Math establish the expectations for learning in areas such as numeracy, measurement and quantities, and data analysis using proportions and ratios that students will develop in elementary and middle school. Once students enter high school, there are courses in Algebra, Geometry, Statistics, Trigonometry, and pre-Calculus which draw upon students’ foundation in each area. This cumulative approach uses prior knowledge and reflective thinking to move students to the next step, which is a successful method for teaching higher-order topics.

We currently cover the following San Francisco-area school districts: San Francisco Unified School District.

Keeping Informed: Recent San Francisco Educational News

  • Interactive School Selector - The Interactive School Selector is a tool available to members of the district who are in the process of determining which school would best suit their child's educational needs and goals. This resource allows parents to look through school listings based on characteristics such as location, language programs that are offered, or which after-school activities are available.
  • Food and Fitness Committee - There are a number of advisory committees consisting of parents and members of the educational community who work with the district on specific areas of policy. The Food and Fitness Policy informs the district as to community concerns and interests in terms of nutritional, health, wellness and fitness educational services are provided by the school. Other committees which are available for parents to join address the interests of Bilingual Education, Special Education, School Facilities, and others aspects of school policies and practices.
  • City Arts and Tech - City Arts and Technology High School is one of the innovative programs available to high school students in the district. The academic program is based around college preparatory coursework, project-based learning, portfolio assessments and oral defense of work exhibitions. Students are challenged to excel in these tasks through a tight-knit atmosphere in which each student has an academic advisor they meet with frequently during the week. This combines academic guidance and support and the independence with which students are allowed to conduct their learning.
