Curriculum Highlights
The K through 8th grade curriculum of Newark Charter School is a challenging combination of the Core Knowledge scope and sequence, developed by the Core Knowledge Foundation, the Common Core State Standards; and the State of Delaware's Content Standards. The curriculum framework identifies grade-specific content to be studied, and it is a logical complement to the Content Standards. At the High School level, NCS is the first Delaware school to offer the Advanced Placement (AP) Capstone Diploma Program supported by the College Board. Academic and career pathways are provided in Computer Science, Engineering, Biotechnology, Business and Global Studies/Leadership in addition to a comprehensive program in the fine and performing arts. As the core of its Engineering Pathway, NCS is one of 7 Delaware high schools to implement Project Lead the Way, a hands-on STEM curriculum that encourages the development of problem-solving skills, critical thinking, creative and innovative reasoning.
