Academics

The program of instruction in the district is designed to prepare students for the world into which they will graduate. The district curriculum is aligned to the rigor of the Common Core State Standards and designed to ensure students meet graduation requirements for college and career readiness. Development and evaluation of curriculum is an annual process to guarantee that students are provided with a program that meets this rigor and preparation. Performance objectives are established for each course with flexibility to allow for individual growth and differentiated instructional methods.

Educational goals and objectives set by the Board of Education serve as the framework upon which the program is built. These objectives include the development of academic and study skills, physical and intellectual development, scientific understanding, aesthetic expression, career development, and an awareness of the interaction between the individual and society. Hicksville Public Schools’ programs provide for excellence in education in each curriculum area, with opportunities for intervention and enrichment.
