Curriculum standards provide teachers, parents and students with a clear understanding of what each student is expected to learn. Standards are created to be relevant to the knowledge and skills children need to be successful.
North City School, Westside School and Athens City Middle School follow the curriculum standards set forth by the Tennessee Department of Education. Additional information about the standards by subject area can be found by clicking the links below.
