The curriculum guide of Our Shepherd Lutheran School is designed to help you understand what the flow of curriculum is from Kindergarten through the 8th grade. Curriculum is defined as "a course or plan of study in a school." It is intended that a child attending Our Shepherd will learn in many and various ways over the years spent here. Each of the subjects taught will introduce new topics and ideas, as well as review and build upon past teachings and prepare students for future topics that will be covered in a higher grade level.
The goal of the curriculum in the elementary and middle school levels is to build a broad and solid foundation of knowledge in the core curriculum subjects. Our curriculum goals and textbooks are selected to support these areas, thus it is important to see a larger spectrum in a child's education than just one grade level.
