Sebastopol District and Curriculum
The school districts of Sebastopol all follow the framework adopted by the state of California and is enumerated through the California Content Standards and the Common Core Standards. These are both framework documents that provide the full scope and sequence of learning objectives for students across the grade span. They are used in all subjects, electives, and specially designed programs to guide student learning.
The goals for the Language Arts curriculum are sweeping in their scope. Students are expected to develop the critical thinking habits of writers, readers, and participants in discussions about events and ideas. The comprehension, analysis, and evaluation of texts is one major strand of the curriculum. Teachers are able to model strategies to develop these habits of readership and proficiency in them are essential for tackling other subjects. Writing is also a major emphasis in the curriculum and students will be expected to develop written work and use editing strategies, including peer editing, to improve their written expression.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sebastopol District Curriculum
Math has been designed to teach students how to understand number systems and quantities, and to manipulate and problem-solve with increasingly complex mathematical processes. By high school, students will be using modeling techniques, expressions and equations, abstract reasoning, argumentation and proofs in their math classes. In Science, students are offered a hands-on learning experience in Biology, Earth and Life Science, Physics, and in subjects like Chemistry, Environmental Science, Technology, and pre-Engineering.
These subjects require the use of the measurement and data analysis skills also taught in Math. Generally, the more advanced topics will require students to bring the knowledge gained in other subjects into the new subject. Students will be expected to write and collaborate on projects, calling upon them to develop planning skills and initiative. Many teachers will also require portfolio-based evidence of student growth and will ask students to design a project that can provide evidence of their academic growth.
