Gretna Middle School’s innovative, rigorous curriculum is specifically designed to meet the needs of its diverse student population. Students engage in reading and writing across the curriculum. Technology is integrated as an educational tool for students and faculty. Faculty collaborate to create lessons geared towards the Common Core State Standards. Curriculum is developed at each level using the latest findings in child and adolescent development, brain-based research, and accepted best practices.
Educators at our school use curriculum mapping across grade levels in order to make transitions between grades seamless and ensure that students acquire the skills needed to continue growing academically and emotionally. Teachers at each grade level have dedicated time to meet regularly to reflect on curriculum and instructional strategies.
