The HighScope® Curriculum

The HighScope® Curriculum used includes components for:

  • Infant-toddler care and education
  • Preschool education
  • Movement and music
  • Proven, research-based strategies for learning

The HighScope Curriculum emphasizes adult-child interaction,  a carefully designed learning environment, and a plan-do-review process that strengthens initiative and self-reliance in children and young people. Teachers and students are active partners in shaping the educational experience.The HighScope advantage is a balanced approach for young learners and the people who teach them.  It integrates all aspects of child and youth development. Using research-validated strategies, this approach enhances each young person’s growth in the foundations of academics as well as in social-emotional, physical, and creative areas.
