The ACS Expected School-Wide Learning Results represent the cumulative skills and attributes we believe critical for children to develop during their time at our school.
With our focus on educating the whole child, we develop curricula to ensure that when our students graduate from Almaden Country School, they embody our seven Expected School-Wide Learning Results (ESLRs).To that end, teachers at every grade level and in each subject area align their lesson plans and instruction to prepare ACS students to be
- Critical and creative thinkers, who know, comprehend, apply, analyze, synthesize and evaluate.
- Literate individuals, who demonstrate developmental competency in reading, writing, mathematics, sciences and other disciplines.
- Effective communicators, who listen, explain, make presentations and respond with clarity, in all curriculum disciplines.
- Healthy individuals, who understand and demonstrate the elements of physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle.
- Community contributors, who practice respect, responsibility, courtesy, service, cooperation, generosity, honesty, patriotism, good citizenship, appreciation for diversity, and school team building.
- Productive individuals, who discover, develop, appreciate and apply their unique gifts with a strong work ethic.
- Self-respecting individuals, who understand their personal value and demonstrate confidence in their abilities.
