The CPS core academic curriculum includes Language Arts (Reading and Writing), Math, Science, and Social Studies. At Waters we strive to differentiate learning within each classroom so that students can feel comfortable yet be appropriately challenged with opportunities to grow. Central to Waters’ approach, the teachers take every opportunity to integrate across content areas and provide authentic hands-on learning experiences. Contact classroom teachers for additional information about grade-level curricula.The Waters School Continuous Improvement Work Plan (CIWP) outlines the specific strategies and action steps for our school’s curriculum.
In addition to the core curriculum, each home room participates in a variety of Essentials programs. Visit program websites at www.waterselementary.org under “Academics” and “By Program.” Waters students receive instruction in music, drama, visual art, digital media (formerly technology), physical education, math enrichment, and ecology.
