Regardless of the grade level, our students benefit daily from carefully chosen curriculum taught by teachers who seek to stimulate learning with creative, best-practice classroom techniques. In a visit to a first grade classroom, you might find students using iPads. There's an ongoing computation initiative with math classes across the board. Ask a Jr. High student how they are using their science lab.
The Selection Process
The selection and implementation of curriculum at Wheaton Christian Grammar School is an in-depth and important process. Two questions guide the selection of curriculum programs: Does the curriculum support our philosophy of education? Does the curriculum enhance the academic strengths of our programs and foster the academic nature of our students and teachers? When these two questions are answered positively, the implementation of curriculum resources begins and is ongoing. This process involves the partnership of administration, faculty, parents, students, and outside resources.
A variety of Christian and non-Christian publishers provide curriculum resources at WCGS. Publishers include: Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI); Christian Schools International (CSI); Modern Curriculum Press; Scott Foresman-Addison Wesley; Open Court Publishing; Harcourt, Houghton, Mifflin, Holt, Rinehart, & Winston; Silver Burdett Ginn; SRA; Macmillan McGraw Hill; Glencoe; and Zaner-Bloser.
