GT Core Curriculum for 2019-20

A school year (about 180 days) is divided into 3 terms (each with 60 days, or 3 months). Here is our calendar (3 terms).
Each class will be taught by a GT instructor.
All materials are included.
Parents will receive weekly feedback/update about the student.

Listed below are the subject that we teach in this school year:

  • Math: problem solving and raven (space/diagram logic), integrated with math count, math kangaroo, and math Olympia.
  • Reading: vocab + fun texts with comprehension challenges
  • Phonics: spelling with sound reasoning
  • Writing: outline, writing, and revision with grammar lessons
  • CogAT: verbal reasoning good for MAP R and PARC tests as well.
  • Speaking: Interpersonal comm. and presentation
  • Physics: mechanics (kinematics, dynamics, force, energy) 
  • IT: web programming with Python and database

Our After-school program stands strongly behind the students' high performance in the state-wise MAP Test (Measures of Academic Progress).

  • Fall test: 9/11 to 11/2
  • Winter test: 1/2 - 2/22
  • Spring test: 4/4 - 6/7
