Exemplary Programs
North Georgetown Elementary (NGE) was recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School and a State Distinguished Title I School in 2006. NGE was also recognized by the State of Delaware and the Southern Regional Education Board as one of three schools in Delaware that are "Beating the Odds". We offer instructional programming that challenges students in the areas of math, reading, science, social studies, writing, and technology. La Casita, First State, and Georgetown Boys and Girls Club are among the community partners that help provide extended learning opportunities for our students. NGE uses an Early Bird (before-school program) to provide intervention support and previewing opportunities for learners. NGE also participates in the Creative Mentoring Program.

Curriculum Highlights
North Georgetown Elementary teachers plan using the Delaware State Standards (Common Core State Standards) using Indian River School District approved curricular resources. We differentiate and scaffold instruction to best meet the needs of all learners. Curriculum highlights include: Bridges Math Program, ELL co-teachers who work with reading teachers to include small group previewing and a focus on language, weekly 90 minute Professional Learning Communities, flexible reading/math groups in the classrooms, 95% Phonics, STAR and DIBELS assessments, Scholastic Reading Counts, the Lucy Caulkins Writing Program and the Treasures Reading program supplemented with novels at the upper grade levels. Teachers and staff adhere to all state and district Response To Intervention guidelines, which provides interventions and extension opportunities for our students. The Smithsonian Science project serves as our main science curriculum as we begin to move into the Next Gen Science Standards.
