Curriculum and Instruction

OUR MISSION: To facilitate maximum learning for every student.  

In order to fulfill the mission, Olentangy staff members actively embrace professional learning and collaboration focused on the Olentangy Foundations and Portrait of a Learner.  Understanding and implementing these concepts make maximum learning possible for every student.

In addition, staff continue to discuss and explore the following questions as part of our professional collaboration and work to increase student achievement:

  • What do we want students to know, understand, and be able to do in each course or curricular area?

  • How do we best assess student learning for each course or curricular area?

  • What do we do when students struggle to learn? How do we intervene to help all students succeed?

  • How do we help those students who learn what they need to know but may be capable of extending that learning even further?

This website and the pages linked have been developed as a resource to highlight the work that is being done by our staff and is part of our continuing efforts to involve and inform all of our stakeholders— staff, students, parents, and community members— as we work collaboratively to maximize learning for every student.
