AT VERNUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, THE ACADEMIC STANDARDS FOR EACH GRADE LEVEL CLOSELY FOLLOW THE CALIFORNIA STATE STANDARDS.
California uses the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) as part of a national movement in the United States to ensure that students receive the same quality education regardless of the State they live in with a focus on college and career readiness.
The Common Core State Standards emphasize achievements at each grade level leaving room for schools to determine their approach to meeting achievement standards.
The Common Core State Standards has an integrated model of literacy in that communication skills are reflected across grade and content areas.
Research and media skills are embedded throughout Common Core State Standards and the Project Based Learning approach supports these skills.
