As a school for gifted and for academically talented students, Emerson offers a rigorous, whole-child curriculum that challenges students to think, explore, and understand. Our exceptional faculty take students on a journey deep into subject matters, teaching students how to learn and to love the process of doing so.

Joyful learning is the result. And though Emerson helps students understand that school is about much more than scores and grades, high achievement has proven to go hand-in-hand with an Emerson education.
The overviews below provide a high-level look at what and how students learn.
Curriculum maps allow you to delve deeper into Emerson’s curriculum, with detailed content for each subject, grade, and teacher. These maps identify the enduring understandings, essential questions, content, and skills that serve as the foundation for much of the teaching and learning that happens at Emerson School.
In coordination with Emerson’s mission, our teachers have crafted thoughtful, relevant, and innovative curriculum maps; however, as we innovate and adjust to the needs and interests of each year’s students, our curriculum is constantly evolving. To that end, these documents are “living” and ever-changing.
Pages labeled “Collaboration” show the shared elements that teachers have crafted together across grade levels or disciplines. Individual teachers may still have added units or variations on this structure under their own teacher pages.
