Core Knowledge

Aspen Ridge provides an educational program that offers a unique learning environment in which your child will be supported to become a well-rounded and ethical leader. The Core Knowledge Sequence outlines specific content to be taught in language arts, history, geography, mathematics, science, and the fine arts. The sequence represents a first and ongoing attempt to state a core of shared knowledge that children should learn. The theory behind Core Knowledge is that the specific content provides a solid foundation on which to build skills instruction. The core content is organized to progress through the grade levels, becoming more sophisticated and dedicated in each successive grade. Our Core Knowledge Sequence provides a detailed and systematic sequence of grade specific content that has been developed with the philosophy that knowledge is built upon knowledge.
