Academic & Extracurricular Program Offerings

At Crooked Creek, we provide the highest level of instruction to each student. Teachers work hard to differentiate lessons for students who may need extra support through remediation or enrichment. During the 90-minute reading block and the 70-minute math block, students participate in whole-group lessons, and small-group instruction, as well as partner and independent work time. Every day there is a 30-minute Focus Time where students needing extra support are pulled to receive interventions. This is also a time that teachers pull students to reinforce skills, and students are able to work on independent learning projects. Every student attends a special area class daily, including art, music, PE, and technology. Students are exposed to different types of activities in these classrooms to build their knowledge of the subject. Throughout the year, we offer a variety of extracurricular activities in which students can participate.
