The curriculum of Christopher House Elementary School is rigorous. It is the intention of the school to promote preparedness for each child to progress through the grade levels successfully. In order to achieve this goal, instruction will be differentiated depending on the needs of the child. Christopher House and its teachers are committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure the success of each individual child.

All scholars must demonstrate progress towards the achievement of Common Core State Standards. Scholars will be assessed every five weeks and at key stages during the academic year to ensure attainment and growth of new skills and knowledge.

We utilize the following research-based assessments:

  • NWEA (MPG and MAP Math; MAP Reading)
  • University of Chicago’s STEP
  • Teacher-team created benchmark performance assessments (every 5 weeks)
  • PARCC (3rd Grade and up)
