Curriculum Maps

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.

If you have questions regarding these maps and the overall curriculum, please contact our Curriculum Coordinators, Jen Kime for Lower School, or Beth Nazario for Middle School.

Learning Support

To support students with whatever emotional or learning needs that may arise, Emerson maintains an exceptional Learning Support team, including a full-time Counselor, Learning Support Specialists, and Learning Support Tutors. Please contact your child’s teacher to discuss whether Learning Support may be appropriate for your child.
