The instructional program at the Charter School of Educational Excellence is specifically designed to meet all of the New York State Learning Standards. Teachers are expected to create a rigorous program for students. Expectations for student performance are high. Our goal is to meet and exceed New York State performance levels and assessment standards in ALL students. Instruction is age/grade appropriate with a strong emphasis on the development of students' social and academic skills through character building activities.
CSEE utilizes a proprietary, standards-based Core Knowledge curriculum to teach history, science, geography, literature and fine arts at a high academic level. Students will follow a sequence of instruction by themes from September to June.
Creative Thematic Enrichment
CSEE uses thematic units that combine reading, math, art, dance, music, computer skills and field trips into enjoyable and informative lessons.
Balanced Literacy/Balanced Math
Our Balanced Literacy program uses authentic literature, independent reading, author studies, genre studies, and the writing process. Balanced Math incorporates many of these language elements into the math curriculum.
Hands-On Science & Technology
Our hands-on curriculum teaches the fundamentals of science while encouraging exploration and analysis. Technology and computer skills are incorporated into the curriculum in all grades.
The Core Virtues program is a practical character education program that promotes basic moral, civic and intellectual virtues on the Kindergarten to 6th grade level. It is a literature based program that seeks to help children to fall in love with the idea of "being good" as well as cultivate their vocabulary of virtues. This program emphasizes the core virtues of respect, responsibility, diligence, gratitude, generosity, courage, loyalty, compassion and forgiveness each month.
