The Oakhill Day School curriculum encompasses instruction for students two years old through the Eighth Grade. The Early Childhood curriculum covers the areas of communication and literacy, early reading skills, fine motor and emergent writing skills, mathematical knowledge, scientific knowledge, social and emotional development, and self-help skills for Toddler, Early Learner, Preschool, and PreKindergarten programs. Lower School and Middle School curriculum includes the academic subjects of Communication Arts, Science, Social Studies, and Math. Special classes in Technology, Spanish, Music, Art, and Physical Education are offered Toddler through the Eighth Grade with curricular content being integrated in all academic areas. Lifeskills are integrated into the curriculum and overall positive school environment to provide character education to students of all ages.
Our curriculum is sequential in that it builds upon skills that are mastered from one grade level to the next. The spiraling effect, in all subject areas, assures that once skills are mastered they are revisited across the grade levels to develop long-term memory of concepts. Not only does the Oakhill curriculum meet Missouri standards, but it exceeds them. Curriculum committees for Early Childhood, Math, Social Studies, Science, Communication Arts, Art, Music, Technology, Spanish, and Physical Education meet continuously throughout the school year to update and perfect curriculum objectives. Teachers and administrators from all grade levels are represented on curriculum committees to assure that the curriculum is currently meeting the highest standards and innovations in education.
