    The curriculum uses the Understanding by Design (UbD) approach and is organized in thematic units to provide meaningful context for academic and cultural content, address national and state standards and assure that students are 21st century college-, careers- and world-ready.  We offer Spanish to all first and second grade students at Orchard Hill Elementary School.
