Here one can find varied educational programs to meet the many needs of our children within the twelve general education classes.

In the area of Reading Instruction, its foundation is an integrated Language Arts program that uses as its core materials the Signature Series Journeys from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. In the area of Writing Instruction, School Three is implementing Writing Workshop. The elementary math curriculum follows the Pearson EnVisions Program. Our daily instruction challenges students to dig deeper into concepts and to think critically.  The instructional program at School Three also includes Social Studies, Science, Physical Education, Family Life, Music, and World Language. These comprehensive programs help to develop students’ appreciation and skills in all domains. Additional support services and programs are provided through the Resource Room, Basic Skills Instruction, Speech, and a full-time nurse. A district Gifted and Talented program comprised of students from all fourteen elementary schools in grades three through five is also provided. 

    School Three is very fortunate to have an involved and supportive Home and School Association (H.S.A.).The Home and School Association provides new students with a School 3 shirt and all students receive an agenda book at the start of the school year. The H.S.A .plays a critical role in organizing and promoting activities such as a Trunk or Treat, Book Fairs, Tricky Trays, etc. The H.S.A. financially supports assemblies and field trips. It is because of the joint efforts of home and school that children have an enriched experience at School Three.

    School Three is committed to providing outstanding education to all of our students. It is through the many fine programs, varied curricula, and educational experiences that students are prepared to become independent thinkers, good decision-makers, self-supporting, and productive citizens in today’s society.
