At Holy Family School we are aware that the children of this new millennium are very different from those of twenty years ago.
We, therefore, have an added responsibility to meet the needs of the children by responding to their different learning styles. At Holy Family we are committed to teaching higher order thinking and have encouraged teachers to assess their instruction and assessment in light of this commitment.
We strive to impart knowledge and achieve comprehension; we are interested in seeing application analysis, synthesis and evaluation.
Our curriculum guidelines are established by the Archdiocese of Boston, Department of Education and are under constant review by the faculty.
Our curriculum is intended to broaden our children’s view of the world. Through our efforts, we hope to enrich the children’s lives physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually.
At Holy Family School we believe that learning is derived from a variety of disciplines. Thematic interdisciplinary curriculum is characterized by a focus on theses and on making connections between various traditional academic disciplines.
Integrating academics and the arts across the curriculum helps a student to master higher order cognitive skills such as reasoning, logic, analysis, and synthesis.
