Our academic curriculum was developed based on Common Core standards. The curriculum scope and sequence is content-focused and adapted to meet the needs of each student. The academic curriculum is rigorous and reflects the grade level content learning of the students’ mainstream peers.
Aaron is dedicated to providing a nurturing, skill based developmentally appropriate education based on students’ individual needs. The classroom team works together to develop and adapt instructional plans on a regular basis to meet the diverse learning styles of our students.
The curriculum is designed to help each student become a confident, successful leader and to help him or her integrate into Aaron’s social community and the community at large. By integrating academic, enrichment and therapeutic services, the lower school at Aaron School blends an academic curriculum into an individualized skill building program that enhances each student’s strengths.
The curriculum focuses on student progress, independence, and building knowledge in each content area.
We believe that:
- Students thrive in nurturing, stimulating, language based classrooms.
- Students need a structured classroom environment with an organized framework and clear expectations.
- Students who are active participants in their learning better understand, retain, and enjoy what they learn.
- Students succeed when their academic program is integrated with a variety of therapeutic and supportive services.
