Statement About Common Core
With so much about Common Core Standards in the news recently, many have inquired about Orangewood Christian School’s stance on these new standards affecting public schools in Florida and across the country. While the details surrounding this issue are ever-changing, our philosophy remains the same- our focus in the classroom is on education and college preparation from a Christian worldview.
With the launch of the national Common Core initiative in the public schools, many textbook publishers are now including some version of a marketing/promotional stamp of “Common Core” on the cover. Our teachers will continue to utilize our chosen curricula as they always have- as tools in the context of a Christian worldview whether they are stamped with common core or not. Orangewood's curriculum has always surpassed state or government standards. As Common Core standards and subsequent tests emerge nationwide, Orangewood will continue to stay abreast of any changes to ensure our students are exceeding those standards and are more than prepared to be accepted and excel in the college of their choice
