Academic Curriculum

Our 14-year curriculum adopts the best approaches of three curricula—Singaporean, American, and Filipino.

Singaporean

Our Mathematics and Science courses are based on the Singaporean curriculum which uses mastery and inquiry as its framework.

American

Our English Language Arts course uses the Ohio and Common Core Standards. Our Social Studies course follows the AERO Common Core Plus standards.

Filipino

Our curriculum follows DepEd’s K to 12 Program—Kindergarten, 6 years of Primary Education, 4 years of Junior High School, and 2 years of Senior High School.

Basic Education Curriculum (BEC)

The MATHEMATICS course is based on Singaporean Mathematics Curriculum that improves the mastery of mathematical concepts by starting with the concrete, then moving through pictorial and finishing with the abstract.
The LOWER SCHOOL LANGUAGE ARTS course uses the Ohio standard that focuses on the following strands—Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Conventions of Standard English through formative exposure to a wide variety of literary and informational resources in a rich and active learning environment. The Lower School 1 has begun transitioning to the Common Core standards. The MIDDLE SCHOOL ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS course uses the Common Core standards and focuses on an integrated approach to learning and using language effectively in all content areas and holistically builds proficiency in speaking, listening, reading, and writing. The JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS course uses Ohio standards for English Language Arts and is rooted in the four macro-skills of language—reading, writing, speaking and listening. The SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL ENGLISH course uses a communicative approach to help students prepare for college level English Courses. At the end of the course, students are expected to have enhanced their facility of the English language and proficiency in reading, writing and speaking.
The SCIENCE course is based on the Singaporean Science Curriculum. It uses inquiry as its framework, where the child is encouraged to be responsible for his own learning, the same way scientists pursue their work. The students are exposed to everyday situations that will mold them to be Reesians, in mind, who are critical thinkers and problem solvers. The course challenges the students to solve current scientific issues and contribute to society. The grade school Science course follows the standards set by the Ministry of Education (MOE) of Singapore while the Junior High School Science Program follows the Cambridge “O” Level Standards.
The SOCIAL STUDIES course follows the AERO Common Core Plus standards for Social Studies. It is designed to address the standards of Time, Continuity & Change, Connections & Conflict, Geography, Culture, Society & Identity, Government, Production, Distribution & Consumption, and Science, Technology & Society.
The LIFE SKILLS course adopts the World Health Organization (WHO, 1997) definition of Life Skills: “Life Skills are living skills or abilities for adaptive and positive behavior that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life.” The course aims to equip students with skills needed to overcome issues they encounter in their everyday life. The program centers on 3 areas: (1) spiral character education program, (2) age-appropriate campaigns including Anti-Bullying, Career Exploration and Substance abuse, and (3) Self-Management.
The PHYSICAL EDUCATION course uses the framework that ensures our students gain the proper motor skills and sport specific skills needed to live a healthy and active lifestyle. It uses the sport specific, skill building mastery framework to develop the whole child.
The MUSIC AND ARTS course of Reedley aims to develop Reesians who are artistically and musically creative and expressive of themselves through the education of Aesthetic Literacy and Art/Music Production, to be global reflections of cultural identity and appreciation. This will be achieved through Art and Music exposure to the canons and the understanding of social, historical and cultural contexts of the arts in a nurturing environment that invokes passion, promotes cultural tolerance and critical thinking.
The INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY course focuses on the procedures of using various software applications as tools that help students do word processing procedures, make visual presentation, data manipulation, photo, audio and video editing, and web developing to attain high proficiency in Information Technology.
The FILIPINO AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE curriculum is based on the Communication strand of Ohio Strands for Educational Achievement and the Mother Tongue standards for bringing to a second language. Focusing on communication, Filipino as a Foreign Language targets oral and written communication skills (interpersonal), comprehension of live, written or recorded texts (interpretive), and presentation of information and ideas on familiar topics to general audiences or readers (presentational). The course aims to develop the Reesian at heart who appreciates the different origins and cultures of people.

  • Lower School (Grades 1 to 3): 15 to 19 students

Academic Programs

We offer supplementary learning programs to students who may need further enrichment in fundamental subjects and skills.

CIAP follows the school’s academic curriculum with a focus on the four core subjects—English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. It is offered to students in Kindergarten to Middle School (Grade 6) who may benefit from an individualized learning approach and close supervision from CIAP teachers.

More often than not, SCP students receive academic honors and awards regularly when moved to a bigger classroom.

Late Students Program

Academic catch-up sessions for our students who come in 6 weeks after official classes have started. 

Students under this program are given the opportunity to attend after-school classes to discuss missed topics. The number of catch-up sessions is based on the number of weeks missed.

An academic supplementary program that meets the communicative needs for cognitive learning of second language learners whose English proficiency level falls below grade level.
