In the SAU23 Schools, we believe that all children should be educated in an environment where they are safe, supported, engaged, and challenged. We work to provide students with meaningful learning experiences so that they develop the knowledge and skills necessary to become healthy, productive citizens. We encourage teachers to work collaboratively to develop robust curriculum units that are aligned to NH Model Competencies and relevant Curriculum Standard Frameworks to ensure that students have a consistent, cumulative experience as they progress from preschool to graduation. When our students graduate from high school, they are ready for college, career, and beyond.
To ensure that our curriculum and instructional practices reflect current research and current student needs, educators engage in a periodic curriculum review cycle. Teams of educators across the district examine our current practices and make recommendations for changes in curriculum and programs.
Though our learning targets for each subject and grade remain fairly constant, the curriculum itself - the lessons, projects, assignments and materials that teachers use in the classroom - are dynamic. Our teachers use their knowledge of teaching and learning to constantly reflect on, revise, and improve their work with students in the classroom.
Best wishes for a wonderful year of learning!
