The St. Margaret of Scotland School curricula drives the teaching and learning that happens in the classroom from day to day, from grade to grade, from subject to subject. We have developed our curricula collaboratively through research and a shared belief guided by our school mission to provide a challenging learning environment for children, prekindergarten through eighth grade, in which they realize their academic potential and giftedness in body, mind, and spirit.
