Exemplary Programs
The Harlan staff is committed to developing and promoting balanced achievement through research based educational best practices. Our goal is to connect learning to the real world as we prepare our students to become global citizens. In our efforts to become an exemplary school we utilize evidenced-based best practices to address the diverse learning needs of our students. We offer heterogeneously grouped classes in grades K-5. We are a community minded school that understands the importance of strong relationships as we work with students and families. We are entering the second year of the rigorous Eureka Math curriculum. We also offer Odyssey of the Mind, Community Service Club, Girls on the Run, drama, band, chorus, boys/girls elementary basketball teams, cheerleading, and many other after school enrichment programs to help foster student achievement. Our school participates in the Excellence in Art program through the University of Delaware. We also offer student mentoring.

Curriculum Highlights

Harlan is consistently committed to academic excellence through rigorous curriculum and instructional expectations. The traditional academic subjects are valued. Grades KN to 5 implement the Eureka math curriculum. The Journeys reading series supports our reading instruction and we incorporate a strategic writing approach to ensure our students are effective communicators. We infuse small group instruction into daily routines to ensure that individual learning needs are met as we work to challenge all ability levels. Every student also receives Response to Intervention support in Math and Reading. Reading intervention is supported by Strategic Reading Strategies (Walpole). In Science, we implement the Next Generation Science Standards through the Smithsonian Science kits. Our Science Club provide students with hands on opportunities to explore this rich curriculum.
