Core Knowledge Is...
"... a necessary foundation
for higher order reading, writing, and thinking skills" - E. D. Hirsch
We learn new knowledge by building
on what we already know. Students in Core Knowledge schools know a lot
because they are offered a coherent sequence of specific knowledge that
builds year by year. Built upon The
Four S's, we offer a solid, sequenced, specific, and shared knowledge
foundation in the early grades, when children are most receptive and
prepared for a lifetime of learning.
