At The Village Charter School, we believe that history is fun and exciting! By learning from the past our students will be better prepared for their future. The Village Charter School uses a real world, interactive approach that brings history to life. Students are able to experience history through a variety of creative teaching methods such as mock elections, mock government processes, and reinactments of historical events. As we study local, state, national and world history our curriculum is enhanced by the study of literature, autobiographies and the use of technology.
The Village Charter School focuses on community of service and humanitarian projects in all grades providing students with the opportunity to apply their understanding of, and contributions to, the world around them.
Additionally, at The Village Charter School there is an emphasis on U.S. History. We belive that as students study the founding of our country and functions of the United States government, they cultivate a sense of patriotism and responsible citizenship. Additionally, each day begins with the Pledge of Allegiance.
The Village Charter School will adopt social studies curriculum for all grades that meets the following criteria: 1) is engaging and supports creative teaching methods, 2) is research-based, 3) has consistent, proven results as demonstrated by students who are meeting and ideally exceeding state standards, and 4) where possible, The Village Charter School uses a curriculum that incorporates hands on learning activities.
