Literacy instruction is guided by the Arkansas State Literacy Standards. These standards focus on critical thinking, research skills, and applying knowledge to real world situations. A Comprehensive Literacy Curriculum provides multiple opportunities for students to become fluent readers and writers, as well as lifetime learners.
Math Curriculum is based off of the Arkansas State Math Standards. Math is taught using the principles and strategies of Cognitively Guided Instruction which uses objects, drawings, conceptual language, and real world situations to help students build mathematical ideas that make sense to them.
Science Curriculum is based off of the Arkansas K-12 Science Standards with the addition of Project Lead the Way modules. The standards reflect science as it is practiced and experienced in the real world and make explicit connections to literacy and math. FES faculty and PTO members have worked together to provide students with science lab activities and an outdoor classroom for students to explore learning in alternative settings. The outdoor area has a covered amphitheater, paved track, and outdoor covered classroom.
