Arnold students are provided with a standards-based curriculum that focuses on preparing students for success in the 21st century. Instructional practices reflect the transition to Common Core State Standards and emphasize higher-level thinking, problem solving, and creativity. Cognitively Guided Instruction in Math All teachers in grades K-3 are trained in CGI (Cognitively Guided Instruction.) Several teachers in grades 3-6 participate in CLIME (Collaboration for Leadership and Improvement in Math Education.) Arnold teachers emphasize mathematical thinking, real-world applications and problem-solving skills in their daily lessons. Access to Current Technology Arnold’s classrooms are equipped with SMART board technology and student response systems. In addition, several classrooms are using iPads and other technology to engage students and increase their access to information. All classes visit our technology lab. Arnold school utilizes programs such as Reading Counts, a computer-based program to support and encourage reading comprehension skills and Study Island, a program students can access at school and home for additional practice and reinforcement. Arts/Music Arts and music continue to be an important part of the educational program at Arnold School. Students participate in arts education in the classroom, on field trips, and during school-wide events and assemblies. After school programs are also offered in the visual arts and instrumental music. Meeting the Needs of All Learners Arnold School celebrates the diversity of our students and our community. We recognize that children learn in different ways, and at different rates. Teachers differentiate instruction throughout the day to meet the needs of all students. PAWS Period All students participate in a 30-minute “PAWS” period four days per week. During this time, teachers provide intensive instruction to students not yet meeting grade level standards, and enrichment is provided to GATE and high-achieving students. Support for English Learners Arnold teachers are certified to teach English Learners and provide instruction to develop English Language Fluency in their students. Character Education/Leadership We believe in the importance of teaching students to be responsible citizens and compassionate toward others. Students are taught about positive character traits and are recognized at school-wide assemblies. Older students also have the opportunity to make a difference at school and in the community through participation in Arnold’s Leadership program.
