As a Baltimore City Public School, Windsor Hills implements district provided curriculum.
New for the 2018-2019 school-year we will implement a reading curriculum for all students, K-8, titled Wit & Wisdom. Students in K-2 will receive daily word-study instruction using a program titled FUNdations. Finally all teachers have access to a full suite of intervention materials from Fountas & Pinnell called Leveled Literacy Intervention.
We will continue to implement a science curriculum co-developed between Baltimore City Public Schools and Johns Hopkins University. This curriculum (STEM Achievement in Baltimore Elementary Schools) or SABES focuses in teaching science content through literacy and math skills.
We have invested in order to ensure that every student has access to technology every day. We currently have four laptop carts and a full computer lab that teachers can reserve.
Freckle Education is an online program that provides personalized and customized lessons in literacy and math.
Windsor Hills has been a designated site for gifted and advanced learners for three years. We implement various programs for our gifted learners including: M2 & M3 math, Jacob's Ladder, and Renzulli Learning.
