Latham Ridge School has many educational goals and one is to help students to better understand the world through study of the physical, earth, and life sciences. The science program features a well-developed, balanced curriculum, with an emphasis on hands-on learning, research and problem solving. There are no text books; teachers use a variety of resources including computers, the Windows on Science laser disc program, and supplemental printed materials. All of these materials are parallel with the NYS curriculum standards. Assessment occurs through a New York State Grade 4 Science Assessment as well as unit tests and district assessments.
The primary goal is to gain understanding of people’s social, political and economic cultures through the use of the skills of exploration, analysis and discovery. Also, students learn and demonstrate citizenship and democratic values. Latham Ridge School students learn to master the basic concepts of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division as well as application of these skills in problem-solving situations. Students are taught to understand mathematics by communicating and reasoning mathematically, by applying mathematics in real-world settings and by solving problems through the integrated study of number systems, geometry, measurement, probability, data collection and analysis.
