Core Knowledge at WFES

The "Core Knowledge" movement is an educational reform based on the premise that a grade-by-grade core of common learning is necessary to ensure a sound and fair elementary education. Currently, hundreds of schools and thousands of dedicated educators are participating in this school reform movement throughout the United States.

The Core Knowledge© Sequence represents the common ground upon which a faculty meets and collaborates to teach a sequenced, coherent curriculum. In this cumulative curriculum, the knowledge and skills learned each year become the students' foundation for learning in subsequent years.

E.D. Hirsch Jr. founded the Core Knowledge Foundation, a nonprofit organization that publishes the Core Knowledge Sequence. The curriculum includes language arts, history and geography, mathematics, science, music, and visual arts.  The Core Knowledge curriculum covers preschool through eighth grade.
