Georgia Standards of Excellence
Curriculum: Clear and High Expectations
Curriculum is defined as a plan for learning. It encompasses all the learning experiences a student encounters under the guidance of the school. The curriculum in Fulton County focuses on the development and application of skills and knowledge as identified by the state of Georgia, national curriculum standards, and local system objectives. Interactive learning and hands-on-experience are central to our vision for the effective delivery of instruction and increased emphasis on higher academic achievement for all children.
