The curriculum at Nile Valley School is based on the American Common Core Standards, which were developed in 2010.
What are educational standards?
Educational standards are the learning goals for what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. Educational standards help teachers ensure their students have the skills and knowledge they need to be successful, while also helping parents understand what is expected of their children.
What is the Common Core?
The Common Core is a set of clear college standards for kindergarten through 12th grade in English language arts/literacy and mathematics. The standards are designed to ensure that students graduating from high school are prepared to enter college or university.
Why are the Common Core Standards important?
High standards provide teachers, parents, and students with a set of clear expectations to ensure that all students have the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in college, career, and life upon graduation from high school, regardless of where they live. These standards are aligned to the expectations of colleges, workforce training programs, and employers. The standards promote equity by ensuring all students are well prepared to collaborate and compete with their peers in our global society.
Welcome to Nile Valley School. I am proud to be part of the wonderful NVS family that
includes all of our children, parents, staff and supporters in the community. Every day we do our best to
ensure that our students are working hard in all aspects of their education. At Nile Valley we use the
American Common Core Curriculum as our standard for instruction. To supplement the Common Core we also
incorporate the newest and most innovative curriculum in the world has to offer. Our teachers use modern
research-based methodology to challenge our students to think “outside of the box.”We want to produce
students who have the right skills to be successful in their post-secondary education and beyond.
We teach creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making skills.
We teach communication and collaboration skills. We provide instruction in citizenship
and personal and social responsibility. Beyond our academically rigorous curriculum Nile
Valley provides a wide range of activities to stimulate creativity and personal fitness.
We believe that by maintaining very high standards we can ensure that our students will
excel in the areas of literacy and numeracy.The teachers at NVS set high standards for themselves.
They want our students to receive the finest education possible. We have high expectations for every
child at Nile Valley and at the same try to instill a mindset whereby every child has high expectations
for him or herself. That, we feel, develops in our students an attitude that embraces learning for the
sake of learning.
I would encourage you to drop by the school anytime and see for yourself the wonderful things that go on every
single day at Nile Valley School! Mr. Faisl Abbas, Chairman. This site is developed by: MSaif, firstname.lastname@example.org
