We use the District of Columbia standards combined with rigorous national standards (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, National Council of Teachers of English, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Habits of the Mind) to create a rich and rigorous educational experience for our students.</p><p>Over the past two years, FPCS has undertaken a school community-wide effort to reform its acaOver the past two years, FPCS has undertaken a school community-wide effort to reform its aca-demic design. The result of this initiative has been the creation of a standards-based curriculum and instructional model, moving FPCS away from scripted instruction to the use of curriculum maps and a variety of texts to support the delivery of instruction across content areas. This effort included teachers and administrators from across the FPCS community, and the intent of this reform is to aid teachers in the differentiation of instruction for varied student needs. Within the design, teachers work collaboratively to determine the big ideas and essential questions inherent in each standard and plan instruction to ensure that students achieve high levels of learning. Asin each standard and plan instruction to ensure that students achieve high levels of learning. As-sessment is used as a tool to gauge students mastery of standards and helps teachers identify the individual needs of each student. Through a continual cycle of inquiry, teachers are able to in-dividualize instruction and address deficiencies immediately.</p><p>We know that the success of our students is largely determined by what our teachers believe, know, and are able to do. Therefore, we invested a great deal of time and energy and many finan-cial resources in ensuring that our teachers receive the best professional development available and in providing students with extended learning opportunities such as the Saturday programs.</p><p>Pre-KindergartenFPCS provides a comprehensive full day proFPCS provides a comprehensive full day pro-gram for children aged three to six. Our pre-kindergarten and kindergarten learning envi-ronment features hands-on learning centers, classroom libraries, and computer learning sta-tions.

Endorsed by the National Association for the Education of Young Chil-dren (NAEYC), The Creative Curriculum encour-ages children to make self-directed and guided choices throughout the day. We also utilize Open Court Reading and Everyday Mathemat-ics as resources to support literacy and mathematics.</p><p>A typical daily schedule may includeMorning Meeting (attendance, weather, news and announcements, etc.)Vocabulary Building (word wall and vocabu-lary building activities)Learning Centers (writing center, science center, dramatic play, etc.)Read AloudContent Area Lessons (mathematics, sci-ence, and social studies)Outdoor Play</p><p>Our program is designed to challenge and Our program is designed to challenge and support the social/emotional, physical, cog-nitive, and language development needs of all children.
