We use the Tennessee Early Learning Development Standards to develop a curriculum that is targeting for each age group. Each week, each teacher develops a lesson plan applying these standards to fit their individual students.


* Students who transfer from private Category IV-V schools back to public school may be required to test to determine grade level and number of credits.
