Utica District and Curriculum
Utica City Schools utilize the Common Core Curriculum which is now the state standard for curriculum in New York State. The evidence and research-based curriculum standards have been adopted to ensure that there is standardization in the curriculum across New York State and that all students receive a quality education. The progressive curriculum starts with the fundamentals and then builds on these skills as a student moves through their school experience. Character education programs promote the development of responsibility, respect, and an appreciation for multiculturalism. These values are important as the community continues to become more and more diverse.
We currently cover the following Utica-area school district: Utica Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Utica District Curriculum
In Mathematics, students at all levels are expected to learn how to use math in their daily lives. This comes from learning basic mathematical components including a fluency in mathematical procedures, a fundamental understanding of math concepts, the ability to solve math problems, and knowledge of math procedures. These fundamentals start with learning numbers, basic arithmetic skills and move on to advanced algebra, geometry and statistics.
In the Language Arts program students learn how to read, write, speak and listen to develop the literary skills that will allow them to demonstrate a command of the language. Students begin with the alphabet and phonics to learn to read and talk and write about the reading material. Students move on to more complex reading material in both fiction and nonfiction and learn to use critical thinking skills to analyze the reading in terms of its structure, theme, and content. They then learn to incorporate these traits in their analytic and creative writing.
