CURRICULA

TERRA VERDE DISCOVERY SCHOOL'S CURRICULUM

Terra Verde Discovery School’s curriculum is a mélange of research based curricular units that emphasize skill mastery. We couple these units with autonomous teacher lessons that promote student interests as they explore our campus and the world around them.

With small class sizes, we provide unparalleled individualized and small group instruction. Our faculty personally connect with each student and their family to assess academic goals and aspirations. Monthly updates are provided to families regarding their child’s social and academic achievements.

THE IMPORTANCE OF LOWER AND MIDDLE SCHOOL ACADEMICS

The state of Oklahoma trails most of the country in educational outcomes and economic funding.

Consider the following:

  • Oklahoma had the smallest percentage of students score at or proficient in math (36%) and reading (30%) according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress.
  • Enrollment in Oklahoma public schools has grown by 27,036 students since 2009 while teaching positions in Oklahoma have decreased by 280 full-time positions.

Terra Verde Discovery School attempts to be an outlier within Oklahoma educational data. We welcome the challenge involved in developing both the academic and social components required to produce successful graduates. At the K-5 level we  are committed to maintaining a 16 student classroom. Our middle school class sizes are capped at 22 students. 

  • Our green initiatives, sustainable campus climate, ethics, Mandarin, Latin, Spanish, art, music, entrepreneurial and ecological programming expose our students to the importance of a well-rounded educational experience.
  • During the 2015/16 school year our CTP test score results validated our educational approach. Our fifth grade class who has been with us since 2010 recorded the following scores: 

o   Reading Comprehension: 89th percentile nationally
o   Verbal Reasoning: 87th percentile nationally
o   Vocabulary: 79th percentile nationally
o   Writing Mechanics: 82nd percentile nationally
o   Mathematics: 88th percentile nationally
o   Quantitative Reasoning: 90th percentile nationally
o   Writing Concepts & Skills: 85th percentile nationally
o   All Subjects: 83rd percentile nationally
