District Curriculum

The mission of the West Shore School District is to provide this generation with a quality education that will serve as a foundation for responsible and successful citizenship. Our curriculum is one avenue through which this mission of nurturing lifelong learners is realized.

We strive to provide a 21st Century, relevant, and standards-aligned curriculum on the belief that all children can learn, that students share responsibility for their own learning, and that students must develop adaptive skills to succeed in the diverse and changing global society awaiting them after graduation. To this end, our curriculum is supported by the Pennsylvania’s Standards Aligned System (SAS), which includes standards, assessments, a curriculum framework, best-practices for instruction, materials and resources, and planned interventions.

To deliver the curriculum, we insist upon a dynamic approach to teaching and learning that fosters continuous improvement. In order to be responsive to emerging and growing trends in teaching and learning, the curriculum is evaluated through the use of an Instructional Design cycle providing opportunities for administration and teaching staff to review and revise each curricular area and assess its effectiveness on an ongoing basis.
