The curriculum is based upon New York State Common Core Standards--organized with clearly defined instructional objectives for each level. Students may start taking musical instrument instruction in grade 5. Weekly lessons are scheduled during the school day on a rotating basis.
PreK and Kindergarten students receive a report card mid-year and at the end of the year. Teachers report 1st – 6th grade progress four times each year utilizing a computer generated report card. Teachers conduct parent conferences in November, when the first report card is issued. Parents or teachers may request a conference at any time during the school year.
