Curriculum at Roxborough
A Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum
At Roxborough, we are committed to Kindergarten-6th grade alignment, which means that we want our students to receive instruction that uses similar strategies, format and language as they progress through each grade level. This way, students can focus on learning concepts, applying those concepts in new situations and integrating them to other content areas in creative ways.
You'll hear us use words like "rigor" and "critical thinking" because that is always our aim: We want to give our students a strong, challenging academic curriculum that foster students ability to critically think, evaluate and analyze.
All of our instruction is framed by the Douglas County Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum (GVC) and the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP). Each grade level organizes their year into 6 Units of Inquiry that provide authentic, global opportunities for higher level learning in each of the 4 components of the GVC.
We use the following resources to help us instruct our students in each of the content areas listed below.
