CurriculumAs soon as a student completes 8th grade, the clock starts ticking. From that very moment, a child has approximately two million minutes until high school graduation...Two million minutes to build their intellectual foundation…Two million minutes to prepare for college and ultimately a career…Two million minutes to go from teenager to adult. How a student spends their two million minutes – in class, at home studying, playing sports, or working – will affect their economic prospects for the rest of their lives. Caesar Rodney High School is committed to providing students with a rigorous curriculum that challenges, supports, and prepares them during their two million minutes in Rider Country.
The Caesar Rodney School District has established a rigorous curriculum development process which supports alignment to the Common Core State Standards. The preparation of our students as life-long learners in a 21st century global community is the unifying objective of this process. The curriculum not only identifies essential knowledge and skills, but also supports students' development in problem solving, critical thinking, and synthesizing resources that will enable them to succeed.
