Curriculum Highlights
The language arts program helps students to develop and practice literacy strategies. At Waters, we stress reading and writing. Reading programs start with summer reading and continue with the Accelerated Reader program. We approach writing using a variety of tools and techniques to help students communicate. The math curriculum supports the Delaware State Standards, yet use real-life situations to act as starting points. Problem-solving and critical thinking strategies are developed, compared and analyzed. Ideas are spiraled and advanced through the curriculum, enhancing mastery. Science rooms are places for our students to observe, experiment, and to think critically. The Social Studies curriculum starts in sixth grade with historical societies and their relationships and influence on the world. Eighth graders focus on United States history with an emphasis on social, economic, and political evolution. Our students are being prepared for a 21st century global market place.
