Grade 5 Students

 

The PK-8 Curriculum at St. Mark School supports the continuous improvement of student achievement and was designed not only to meet, but to exceed state and national standards. It helps students reach their full potential not only now, but also in higher education and in their adult lives. Teachers and administrators designed this proprietary curriculum under the guidance of national experts in Curriculum Mapping, a process of organizing and planning what is happening in our classrooms at specific points during the school year. The maps are aligned with Gospel Values in every subject area so that students always learn in an atmosphere that includes Christ at its center. Please note that, in order to ensure exceptional academic standards in our classrooms, curriculum may be revised to meet the needs of students and curricular requirements. For this reason, some units may change over the course of time as teachers make necessary modifications.
