District 204 Curriculum is based upon state and national curriculum standards and local needs. May Watts teachers follow district curriculum. Many May Watts teachers sit on district curriculum committees and are involved with decisions regarding content, process, materials, resources, and other matters that affect the curriculum offered to our students. As a school we work together to articulate curricula across grade levels. We feel that students should hear the same language regarding reading, writing, thinking, speaking, and listening and in the disciplines as well.
In the past few years, our School Improvement Program has focused on improving teaching and learning in reading, writing, and mathematics. We also have a strong Citizenship program that helps students understand concepts such as respect, responsibility, kindness, trustworthiness, and citizenship.
