Why St. Charles School?

  • whats new


     Enriched Science Curriculum

    St. Charles School has added HMH Science Dimensions, a research-tested program developed by science educators and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) advisors to help teachers and students approach science learning through integrated, exploratory activities and rich NGSS content.

    Students learn to think like scientists through exploration, analysis, application, and explanation. Students collect evidence, reflect in writing, discuss their findings, and explain their results—advancing their literacy skills and their understanding of critical science concepts. 

    Where will instruction take students? With HMH Field Trips powered by Google® Expeditions, the answer is virtually anywhere with 360-degree virtual field trips that allow students to travel through history, explore the world, and witness scientific wonders, creating a "window-on-the-world" interactive classroom!

    Concept-Centered Social Studies Program 

    California Studies Weekly, Grades K-5

    St. Charles School has adopted a research-based social studies program for grades K-5: California Studies Weekly. The program provides a new booklet every week and students will engage in hands-on curriculum, where they can highlight, take notes, and complete learning strategies right on the publication. Students also have access to the online learning platform and can delve deeper into history through images and videos. Integrated with close reading strategies and language arts standards, the weekly content presents rich information and enables students to apply reading, interactive note-taking, and writing skills into social studies.

    TCI History Alive, Grades 6-8

    Middle School students use History Alive!, with content and activities that are highly interactive and aligned with California History-Social Studies Standards. Students grasp important details and gain understanding of the "big ideas" across geography and over time. Each unit begins with a Big Idea and an Essential Question and incorporates graphic notetaking, groupwork, and student discovery learning.

  • Enhanced Mathematics Program

    Online Tools to Support, Enhance, and Extend Mathematics Achievement

    Students in grades K-4 experience math in multisensory ways, increasing engagement and enjoyment in learning math concepts. Using the online TouchMath program, students receive immediate feedback with audio and visual reinforcement that supports all types of learners. Designed specifically to produce results among students of all learning styles, the program ensures that students see, say, hear, touch, and learn using interactive classroom aids, manipulatives, and simulations. This program supplements the St. Charles classroom curriculum and further differentiates instruction to reinforce critical math concepts.

    Using St. Charles digital tools, students in grades 5-8 have new opportunities to apply and expand their mathematics learning through the online ALEKS program, which differentiates instruction and provides an optimal path to success for each student. This program supports teachers with ongoing assessment of student progress and personalized instruction that fosters student learning for mastery and retention. Students benefit from immediate feedback and step-by-step explanations to ensure full understanding and application of the Common Core Standards.

    After-School Math Lab  

    St. Charles School employs a team of teachers specializing in math instruction whose talents are expressed during daily classroom instruction and extended to after-school personalized practice and extension. Smaller, split math classes in grades 5-8 increase opportunities for teachers to reach all students and foster increased student participation. The St. Charles after-school Math Lab program gives students a unique environment in which to communicate, practice, and master mathematics concepts with support from teachers who specialize in math.
