Goals and Expectations
girl readingIn the first grade a variety of activities are provided to afford all children the opportunity to feel successful. Students are encouraged to be active participants in their own learning as they explore, question, take risks, and seek out knowledge. Much time is devoted to teaching children to become independent and responsible members of a caring community of learners. The social curriculum supports and makes possible the successful implementation of the academic curriculum.

Each grade at the Morse School also includes a Basic Academics/Services classroom for students who have moderate to severe disabilities across various domains. Students are included with their general education peers to the maximum amount possible as deemed appropriate by the IEP team.
