Many will see curriculum as a checklist of subjects and topics that are worked through. Some will see curriculum as knowledge and skills that need to be learned, memorized or developed. Others might even view a curriculum as a programme of experiences for students to work through as they progress through school.
Here at the British International School of Houston, we view curriculum as a key and integral part of a learning programme that seeks to empower and support our students as they set out to achieve the highest possible academic goals and prepare for a successful life both in school and beyond. The following quote encapsulates the belief that our curriculum should be viewed as far more than something that is required to be passed, checked off and worked through. It should be part of an engaging, rewarding and memorable life experience for all concerned.
