daystar-new-curriculumnBig changes will be made to Daystar Academy’s curriculum this fall. Beginning this September, Daystar will be adopting the US Common Core Standards for their Elementary School’s English program. The school is transitioning from English Montessori for Lower Elementary to the US Common Core Standards for the entire Elementary School.

The move ensures students are at grade level English language ability and further facilitates their transition into Middle School. Using Common Core as the benchmark, Daystar will be implementing the Columbia (University) Reading & Writing Project for its English curriculum. The Chinese curriculum, which follows China’s national curriculum, remains unchanged, while Kindergarten will also remain 50/50 English and Chinese Montessori.

Daystar will remain the same at its core, committed to true 50/50 bilingual education and developing world citizens. Daystar’s integrated bilingual curriculum will continue to develop students with creative and critical thinking skills and service learning and environmentally conscientious projects.
