OUR ACADEMIC CURRICULUM
The Harris School provides a comprehensive curriculum of intellectual, aesthetic and physical activities that further the cognitive, social-emotional and physical development of students. Our beliefs incorporate both the academic and social-emotional growth of each child, regardless of their diagnosis, trauma or special need.
Our staff understands that each student comes to the school at different levels of development and each student needs an individualized plan in order to grow. They continuously balance the academic and the emotional needs of the student, using a therapeutic approach to achieve academic growth.
Our preschool curriculum is based on the Texas Education Agency's guidelines and standards, with an emphasis on discovery and play. Lessons for our school aged students are based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). These students are assessed for academic growth in reading and math using an online standardized assessment called Let’s Go Learn. This measurement tool provides objective, individualized assessment data that helps us with our individualized instruction plans.
