Grade School

K School Grade School Curriculum for K - 8

K School’s curriculum was specifically developed to take in to consideration our philosophy for Christian education at each grade level and subject. After reviewing and incorporating federal and state standards we established our goals and standards to meet a diverse educational community. Within the curriculum, we strive to meet and/or exceed those standards established by our state.

Instruction

The majority of our teachers are trained Lutheran school teachers who are instructed how to incorporate biblical principles in all areas of the curriculum. Our faculty members use a variety of teaching methods in order to assist in the learning process. These methods are designed to address a variety of learning styles. This differentiated approach allows teachers to use the most appropriate instructional methods for their age level of student for the material to be covered while meeting any individual needs within the class.

Students needing more direct, small group instruction may qualify for our CARE program. CARE is designed to address academic difficulties stemming from learning disabilities and attention deficits; however the CARE program is not a certified Exceptional Student Education program. This is a referral program.

Textbooks

The following textbooks are used as a resource to complete our curriculum. All of the textbooks used below are from the Florida Department of Education: School Book Depository and are approved by the State of Florida for use in public schools with one exception.
