FLEXIBLE, EFFECTIVE CURRICULUM
No two words affected the development of our elementary curriculum more than flexibility
The needs of elementary schools are as unique as those of middle and high schools, and no solution created for the upper-level environments can be expected to work well in the lower grade levels. Pitsco Education takes what’s been proven to work in a “systemic” classroom and applies it to the age-appropriate needs of the elementary school student. The combination of these features makes our elementary STEM curriculum especially effective.
Four unique elements are at the core of student success.
Pitsco Education has 72 units of instruction for Grades 3-6, and each incorporates developmentally appropriate lessons and activities created around the needs of each target age group.
The curriculum is truly a hands-on science
solution built to deliver critical STEM-centric content in life science, Earth science, and physical science while integrating math, technology, and language arts.
is an integral part of every curriculum solution we develop at Pitsco Education. Our elementary solution puts students to work in teams of four, and each student has a unique role as the team discovers key STEM concepts while being challenged to solve real-world problems.
The classroom environment
addresses the ever-present challenges of space, time, and resources. This system can be successfully implemented many different ways including as a science lab, a science center, and an after-school program.
