The Curriculum

Curriculum, World Cultures, Standards and Program of Study
The Columbia Heights Educational Campus is a standards-based school, which means that standards have been set for teacher performance, principal performance, and student performance.  The academic standards set for students include what students should know and be able to do at each grade level.  World Cultures/Global themes are intended to integrate culture, global studies and the standard curriculum. Curriculum is designed so that students can develop their learning through the lenses of rigor, relevance and social justice.

Content standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject. This year we will utilize the Common Core State Standards.  

Performance standards indicate the kind of task a student must perform (such as writing an essay, completing an exam, conducting a scientific experiment) and the quality of student performance that is acceptable to show the content standards have been met.
