Foresta School follows a curriculum and instructional approach that emphasizes project-based learning and aligns with established standards. While specific guidelines for lesson planning and delivery may vary, the following principles are generally encouraged:
The school encourages hands-on, inquiry-based learning experiences where students actively engage in projects and real-world problem-solving. Lessons should be designed to promote critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication skills.
Teachers are expected to align their lessons and activities with the curriculum standards established by the school. These standards provide a framework for instructional planning and ensure that students are exposed to the necessary content and skills at each grade level. You can read more about our approach below.
Often our students come in at different math levels and there we have elected to use adaptive math curriculum in order to meet students at where they are at.
Science, Sustainability, and Agriculture
We are proud of our agriculture program, which teaches all students the basics of regenerative agriculture as a pathway to food security. Our students learn about the importance of sustainable agriculture and the role it plays in preserving our planet for future generations, while increasing food security and self-reliance. We develop this program while also enlisting proven curriculum to ensure standards are met.
ELA and Social Studies
Our dedicated teachers put in tremendous effort, utilizing a well-established curriculum and employing an integrated approach that combines our ELA and social studies programs. Our project-based model frequently brings these two programs together, fostering a cohesive learning experience.
