Exemplary Programs
Brandywine Springs School is committed to providing all students with a standards-based, developmentally appropriate program aligned with the Common Core. Additionally, we believe that programs that enrich the life of the student are very important for providing skills in areas that affect the lives of the children. This quality, well-rounded curriculum encourages children to be active learners. We want them to be challenged, as well as have fun as they are achieving predetermined goals as well as being encouraged to set personal learning goals. Students aided by teachers help to drive their own learning as well by planning the path to achieve such goals.

Our philosophy at BSS is to integrate and naturally weave technology into the daily curriculum. Therefore, during tech time, students use technology to enhance their learning of academic subjects. Lessons are developed with and enhanced by technology to address content standards for Reading, Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. Skills such as creating webs, developing power point presentations and formulating excel spreadsheets are taught on each grade level as early as kindergarten. In order to ensure the success of this integration, teachers often collaborate with the technology teacher to reach this goal.
