The curriculum of our school meets all the requirements of the state of Washington’s superintendent of public instruction and follows the guidelines prepared by the Commission on Lutheran Schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). Our school year fulfills the hourly requirements of the Washington State Board of Education. We are approved by the Washington State Board of Education.
The students receive instruction in all subjects required by the Washington Department of Education. These include the following: reading, phonics, English, spelling, penmanship, math, science, social studies, history, geography, music, physical education, and art.
“Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.” (Romans 10:17). In order that the Word of God may nourish and strengthen the faith of our children, and that Christ may be their anchor in the years to come, the memorization of Bible passages, hymns, and the chief parts of Christian doctrine are required of all students.
Physical education is provided to promote the development of coordination, wholesome companionship, consideration of others, and a sense of fair play. All students are expected to participate in activities during the recess periods and physical education classes unless excused by a parent’s written request. Requests for a prolonged excuse from physical activities should be accompanied by a doctor’s note.
Following are the individual subject curricula with philosophies, objectives, and scope and sequences.
