All grades are using the common core aligned math program, EngageNY, also known as Eureka Math. The curriculum was created by Great Minds, a nonprofit that brought together teachers and experts to create a program based on the world's most successful math programs. Eureka was built around the core principle that students need to know more than just what works when solving a problem - they need to understand why it works. The curriculum goes beyond facts and formulas, teaching students to think about math conceptually. This helps students become not merely literate, but fluent in mathematics.

The NYCDOE K-8: Passport to Social Studiesprogram is a comprehensive instructional resource that integrates the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) and the New York State K-8 Social Studies Framework to support strong social studies teaching and learning. An effective social studies program allows students to make sense of the world in which they live, make connections between major ideas and their own lives, and see themselves as active members of a global community. While knowledge of content is very important, it is equally important to engage our students in historical thinking. This program challenges students to think like historians and encourages them to raise questions, think critically, consider many perspectives, and gather evidence in support of their interpretations through the practice of chronological processing, decision-making, and historical research and analysis. These real-world skills will serve students well as participating citizens of a democracy.
