Parents often ask questions about the learning standards used in our curriculum to found out ‘what is being taught in our classrooms.’ Each of our schools do an excellent job during our Annual Curriculum Night events, held each fall, to provide an overview by grade level and to open the critical lines of communication with our families. We are proud of our family and community partnerships in Gower and work hard to ensure that we are meeting the needs across a school community as diverse as ours.
