NPS Curriculum

  • Nantucket Public Schools implements the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks that are based upon the common core state standards. The frameworks for all subjects, model curriculum maps, and example units can be found on the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (MA DESE) website:

    "What is important to remember is that each of the curriculum frameworks will always be considered as works in progress, and we will continue to refine them to strengthen them and to keep them current. Local communities will use the frameworks to develop more specific curriculum. The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education will base the new student assessment program on the frameworks." - MA DESE curriculum homepage

    This link provides access to parent guides in that detail the end of year outcomes for students learning in a standards-based environment.  They are available in English, Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese.
