Elementary School and Middle School
These menu items on the left will take you to our Scope & Sequence documents for the Elementary and Middle School.
A scope and sequence of learning brings order to the delivery of curriculum content, which supports the enhancement of student learning. Without a considered scope and sequence, there is a risk of ad hoc content delivery and so the omission of significant concepts from the education of some students.
With this in mind, AIS Faculty have developed a scope and sequence for each academic department area. They have identified the key topics that should be addressed throughout the teaching of their discipline and have charted how those topics will be taught as a student goes through our school from grade to grade.
The scope and sequence documents are arranged by Grade and by Topic.
The Grade document shows the curriculum for that grade in the subject selected, e.g. the Language Arts curriculum for Grade 1. The document is separated into topics (and sub-topics) and outlines the concepts, details and vocabulary that will be covered under each topic for that subject.
The Topic document shows the progression of curriculum from Pre-K to Grade 8 for each topic identified, e.g. the progression of the teaching of Algebra in Mathematics from Pre-K to Grade 8.
Middle School and High School
The curriculum for all High School and Middle School courses may be found on our Atlas Rubicon Public Site . The password is curriculum.
Here, you will find curriculum maps for High School and Middle School courses that itemise the declarative knowledge (information-based knowledge) and procedural knowledge (skills or processes) that we are teaching our students for the first time. They also display alignment with our own Scope and Sequences of learning or with International Baccalaureate curriculum, where appropriate.
