The RISE Standards-Based Curriculum is aligned with State and National Standards and represents a rigorous approach to teaching content, concepts and skills for today’s learners. Each classroom is equipped with state-of-the-art technology using interactive white boards, document cameras, and other hand held devices. Students explore learning independently and interact with their environment as young scientists. Our advanced curriculum challenges students to think critically in everything they do.
The Florida State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers work to prepare students for college and careers.
