Curriculum and Instruction
Welcome to the Los Gatos Union School District's Curriculum and Instruction home page!
The Los Gatos Union School District is committed to educating the whole child. The curriculum and instruction are designed to assist each child to develop intellectually, emotionally, socially, physically, ethically, and aesthetically. We support all students as they become active, engaged learners. Standards, curriculum, and assessment shape the learning experience for students in our district. The district has adopted the Common Core Standards in English Language Arts and Math in addition to the California Content standards in all other curricular areas. The LGUSD teachers provide a high quality, standards-based, rigorous and relevant, curriculum for all students. Each student is guaranteed access to the grade level core academic instruction in English/Language Arts and Writing, Mathematics, Science and Social Science as well as Physical Education. Additionally, each K-5 student receives a comprehensive, standards-based program in Art and Music. Middle School Students who wish to pursue their interests and talents in Visual or Performing Arts are afforded that opportunity on a daily basis in their choices of electives. All staff members assess their students using state standards as the benchmark for grade level expectations.
Teachers and administrators continually evaluate instructional strategies and student achievement to ensure all students receive instruction that is academically and developmentally challenging. Technology tools and resources are integral to the instructional and assessment processes in order to help all students achieve.
The Los Gatos Union School district is dedicated to provide the best to our students; our community; our future.
