CURRICULUM & INSTRUCTION
North Hopkins ISD believes it is essential to provide a caring and creative learning environment that promotes excellence, fosters integrity, and encourages each student to reach his or her academic, extracurricular, and social potential.
Students receive a well-rounded education firmly established upon the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Teachers use the curriculum as a guide for the school year to ensure consistency throughout classrooms and across grade levels. Where the curriculum is the “what”, the instruction is the “how”. Teachers receive professional development each year to stay abreast of best practices and new technologies to engage students in the delivered instruction. Formative and summative assessment data is utilized to drive and differentiate instruction based on individual student needs and learning styles.
NHISD is committed to designing an exemplary curriculum that is academically rich, challenging, and prepares our students to excel in the 21st Century. Such a curriculum promotes authentic, collaborative, and reflective learning. Students are expected to be self-directed, able to manage complexity, think critically, communicate in multiple modes, and solve problems.
