At Liwa International School we offer a curriculum that is aligned to the California Common Core State Standards, along with the MOE regulations and expectations set by ADEK. Staff have worked to design an engaging curriculum for their grades in subjects that utilizes as many cross curricular links as possible to deepen learning and promote Excellence, Enjoyment, Innovation and Critical Thinking.
Each grade has prepared a curriculum guide for parents - look under each grade tab for KG and Elementary, or subjects for Middle and High school.
Each grade team ensures that the Standards are taught within the grade, and that the full breadth and balance are explored.
In the lower school we have a strong focus to Reading and language immersion, with a clear plan to address the issues of pupils who have English as a Second Language.
The appointment of a Curriculum Coordinator for the whole school and regular meetings of our curriculum committee have been instrumental in facilitating our strategic developments in line with the needs of the pupils and the school, as well as ensuring that the progression from KG through to grade 12 is closely monitored and that all children are well prepared for the next stage in their education at each transition point.
We offer workshops throughout the year for parents to involve and inform them in regard to our curriculum and the way their children work in the school.
