Our curriculum combines aspects of our two core academic traditions.

Create a stimulating bilingual learning environment that focuses on student learning, development and well-being and unleashes the creative potential.

Main Curriculum Scope and Sequence K-12

A language arts curriculum is typically designed to further enhance student literacy (this includes reading, writing, speaking, and sometimes, even listening skills). In order to accomplish this, an English Language Arts curriculum will usually include the following subjects: Phonics, Reading, Grammar, Vocabulary, Writing and Spelling
Making sure that students understand math vocabulary and have ample opportunities to use it are very important. Solving word problems, following instructions, understanding and using mathematical vocabulary correctly — all of these skills require a language proficiency that sometimes exceeds our expectations. We tend to think of mathematics as a subject that does not require a strong command of language. In reality, however, mathematical reasoning and problem solving are closely linked to language and rely upon a firm understanding of basic math vocabulary (Dale & Cuevas, 1992; Jarret, 1999)

The goal of our science class is to teach English, not Science. However, by learning content such as science, an English student can
broaden their English and Science vocabulary and their comfort level with verbal and
written communication.

Whether we are teaching about the solar system, the
chemical interactions or the evolution of man, science provides interesting and
challenging content for our students who are trying to incorporate English into
their everyday conversations.

A social studies curriculum should give students a better understanding of the world around them and the society they live in. Merriam-Webster defines social studies as, “curriculum concerned with the study of social relationships and the functioning of society and usually made up of courses in history, government, economics, civics, sociology, geography, and anthropology.”

The Let’s Read English social studies curriculum begins in PreK, when young learners are introduced to concepts that help them understand the ins and outs of a community. As students advance to higher grade levels, they’ll expand their knowledge by learning about a number of fundamental topics like human needs and U.S. history as well as more complex matters such as U.S. government and foreign policies.

Electives K-12

An art history curriculum is typically offered as a high school elective. As the name implies, high school art history provides students with an overview of art throughout history. Students explore art and how it evolved throughout different time periods and in various parts of the world.

Concepts in Probability and Statistics is an elective course in high school that aims to help students apply statistics ideas to real-world situations. It is ideal for students needing an alternative math credit, but who may not wish to pursue more advanced mathematics courses such as Algebra II and Pre-Calculus.

Often without realizing it, we all benefit from statistics and probability every day. From weather reports to medical test results, from election polls to census data, probability and statistical language and concepts inform every aspect of our society. An introduction to probability and statistics gives high schoolers the ability to judge whether the conclusions drawn from data are accurate.

Our online high school health course encourages students to examine practices and plans for living a healthy lifestyle. Through interactive activities and thought-provoking studies, students focus on topics such as physical fitness, mental health, disease prevention and first aid, but also investigate the consequences of unhealthy habits such as drug use.

Every parent wants their children to make smart choices when it comes to their lifestyle. While studying our high school health curriculum, students will learn how to make those choices by  conducting comprehensive studies in order to build mentally and emotionally healthy relationships with their peers and family. They’ll also formulate healthy nutrition, sleeping, and physical fitness plans that they can immediately incorporate into their lives.

A high school economics curriculum aims to help students understand what economics is, how it plays a part in their daily lives, and how it affects the world around them. In addition, students also gain some insight into how to manage their money wisely by learning about topics like financial planning, budgeting, and investing.

Studying high school economics helps students gain the necessary skills so they can understand how economic markets around the world work. In the process, they build their analytical and problem-solving skills which will help them succeed now as students and in the future as working professionals.

A college-prep high school track usually includes three years of science credits, but many high schoolers interested in science will aim for four. Let’s Read English offers an online environmental science course as a two-semester elective.

An introduction to Environmental Science offers students the opportunity to apply scientific knowledge to practical current problems. It helps them better understand the relationship between humans and the world in which we live.

A personal wellness class is designed to teach students about the various aspects of health and fitness. Throughout the course, students learn about all the components that go into being healthy including the different types of exercise as well as their benefits, nutrition, mental health, and so much more.

Taking a personal wellness class can be of great benefit to every high school student. As your child matures and enters adulthood, it’s important that they know how to take care of both their physical and mental well being.

The healthy living course is a full-year high school elective designed to help students make informed and responsible decisions on setting healthy goals, managing emotions, drug use,  building relationships, making better consumer choices and more. The course combines teacher interaction, vibrant visual tools and real world projects that engage students.

The health industry has exploded into a billion dollar business. Young people are bombarded on TV and the internet with dubious ads promoting miracle diets, mental health cures, nutritional supplements, and relationship advice among other things. But once teenagers educate themselves on building their own healthy living strategies with this course, they are less likely to rely on the next best trend.

Our full-year intro to art class covers topics such as the definition and cultural purpose of art, visual elements of art, and examines art in various time periods such as ancient civilizations and more. The course also includes meaningful teacher support and interactive tools that help students relate to and visualize the content.

An art appreciation class acts as a portal into the world of ancient art, two and three dimensional media, and current trends such as photography, art in advertising and fashion, and the revolutionary video on the internet market.

Our intro to communications class is a full-year course that features teacher communication through engagement and online collaborative tools. Students learn about the components, origins and characteristics of communication through interactive activities and thought-provoking lectures.

Without communications and speech, people would not be able to effectively interact with one another. It is the foundation for what people do in daily life. An intro to communications class effectively teaches students how to inform and explain themselves, evaluate and compare ideas, and provide insight into verbal and non verbal messages.

Staying healthy and in shape should be a lifelong goal rather than a temporary one. A lifetime fitness curriculum aims to educate students on topics such as exercise, nutrition, and stress management to help them make healthy choices throughout their lives.

A lifetime fitness class can be beneficial to students for many reasons. Studying lifetime fitness in high school helps students understand the positive effect exercise has on the body and mind, and the role that good nutrition has on their well being.

In high school sociology, students will learn about the diverse cultures that make up our growing society. It covers cultural diversity and conformity, social stratification, racial and ethnic interactions, the study of social life and more.

As our population grows more diverse, the need to understand the norms of other cultures, their social institutions, and the collective human behaviors of past and present societies, has become essential.

As students get ready to enter the real world, it’s important that they have the skills and the knowledge to make smart financial decisions. A personal finance class in high school can help them learn about the importance of financial responsibility and managing their money wisely.

Studying personal finance in high school can help students tremendously since many are getting ready to begin to make their own decisions when it comes to money. The skills they learn in a personal finance curriculum can easily be applied to their life, whether they are attending college, getting a job right after high school, or moving out to live on their own.

High school psychology is an elective course that aims to give students an understanding of human behavior. Psychology classes for high school students typically cover several important aspects such as the history of psychology, research methods, classification and treatment of disorders, and more.

There are many reasons to study high school psychology. In addition to gaining a number of social and emotional learning skills that promote positive mental health, a high school psychology curriculum helps students academically by teaching them important research skills.

Strategies for Academic Success is a one-semester elective designed to help students learn the skills and techniques that support academic achievement. Offering a comprehensive analysis of different types of motivation, study habits, and learning styles, the academic strategies class encourages students to take control of their learning by exploring varying strategies for success.

College graduates often remark that the most important course in their credit load was the one that taught them how to study more effectively.  By taking a Strategies for Academic Success class in high school, teens are jumping ahead of the curve and building skills that will help them thrive academically through high school and beyond.
