Varnell Elementary Curriculum
In this rapidly changing age, our mission is to prepare students for the challenges and opportunities that are certain to come. If students are to be successful, they must be creative, articulate, literate, logical, and critical thinkers. We believe curriculum must be designed to educate students to be responsible, productive citizens who will be able to adapt to an ever-changing, global society through continuous learning.
Varnell’s curriculum is aligned to the state-adopted Georgia Standards of Excellence in Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. In addition to core studies, standards are also used to teach in the areas of Fine Arts and Health/Physical Education. We prepare students for college and careers by providing rigorous, relevant classroom instruction related to each child’s needs. Our curriculum was developed by Whitfield County teachers for our students and is aligned with the district’s mission to maximize student learning by providing challenging and engaging educational experiences in a safe and supportive environment.
Each unit of study prioritizes essential concepts and skills students should master in that grade or course. The curriculum offers engaging learning experiences that are based on tasks that require critical thinking and application of knowledge in real-world situations. Instructional resources and digital tools, as well as support services, help every student reach their potential.
Together, we can help your child achieve educational excellence. We encourage you to talk with your child about what they are learning and support their learning at home.
