Standards Based Education

  • Somerdale Park School’s standards-based education system establishes challenging and appropriate learning targets for all students. We do this in every course, at every grade level, and in every classroom. We use standards-based education across the district to ensure our students graduate with critical knowledge and 21st century skills.
