The Core Knowledge philosophy provides a carefully sequenced set of skills and content with an emphasis on the knowledge that is most useful and productive for children living in American society today.
For parents, Core Knowledge enhances accountability and parental engagement by providing a clear outline of what children are expected to learn in school. This outline also provides a common ground for communication between parents and educators.
Make Your Day Citizenship Program
At Sunset Canyon, students and teachers follow the philosophies of the Make Your Day Program in regards to citizenship and respecting themselves and others. We are part of a diverse community of learners, where students learn tolerance and acceptance and where we believe that every child has the right to come to school and feel safe.
