Curriculum

The curriculum at Atlantis Charter School is based, first, on alignment to the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, which are working documents that are continually improved by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) in partnership with schools and districts statewide. The most notable example of that continual improvement is the state’s current adoption of the Common Core State Standards.

Atlantis continuously evaluates the equity and efficacy of its curriculum through, among other tools, the work of grade-level teams during common planning time, bi-weekly professional development, weekly formative assessments aligned to instruction, and the use of The Achievement Network’s interim assessments aligned to the MCAS and Common Core Standards.

The school conducts quarterly and annual reviews of all units of study, which are uploaded into a standardized Curriculum Scope and Sequence.
