For the past four years, MCPS has been making exciting improvements to its elementary school curriculum. This upgraded curriculum—called Curriculum 2.0—is designed to make sure students receive a strong foundation in the core subjects of mathematics, reading and writing. It also puts a renewed focus on other important subjects, such as social studies, science, physical education and art. It also emphasizes critical and creative thinking skills that are important for a lifetime of learning and success in the 21st century. You can learn more about Curriculum 2.0 here.
