The curriculum for students in Kindergarten through Fifth grade follows DCPS curriculum schedules using a Responsive Classroom approach
The Common Core is a set of nationally recognized academic standards in mathematics and English language arts/literacy
Students with disabilities spend as much time with their non-disabled peers as possible (as decided by the Individualized Education Programs team)
