Crompond School teaches children to respect different viewpoints, while learning to trust one another. Both staff and parents work together to improve the educational experience of the children and help to make the school community an exciting place to learn. The academic programs at Crompond are in alignment with the New York State Learning Standards and district curricula goals. Teacher address learning activities which address the following curricula areas: English Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, and Health. Many of these learning experiences are differentiated in order to meet the developing abilities of students.
Health instruction is often integrated with other curricula areas. For example, the grade one science curriculum addresses the importance of maintaining a healthy body. Certain aspects of the health curriculum are addressed on a school-wide level. With Language Arts, students have a wide range of opportunities to learn about literacy in a way that promotes reading, writing, speaking and listening in their daily lives. For reading, instructional components of this balanced approach include the teacher reading a book or text to students Read Aloud, students reading with the teacher Shared-Reading, the teacher working with a small group of students who use similar levels of text Guided Reading, students reading independently.
