Focus
Our instructional practices align with State of Ohio Content Standards and National Standards. Standards-based education clearly defines academic content standards providing the basis for content and process in instruction and assessment. It ensures that students learn what is important, and aims for a higher, deeper level of understanding in what students should know and be able to do. Our recent focus on quality approaches has enabled us to use the latest research methods in a systematic way to meet the needs of each child and differentiate the learning experiences for all. This includes appropriate intervention programs, individual instruction, after-school classes, enrichment courses or summer tutorials.

Curriculum
At the elementary level, students are immersed in art, health, language arts (including reading), math, music, physical education, science and social studies. The curriculum meets and/or exceeds standards established for state-required achievement testing, which is administered in the third-, fourth- and fifth-grades. Extended Day Kindergarten for selected students provides intervention in the area of literacy. Identified students attend a regular kindergarten program in the morning and participate in a specialized afternoon session that targets reading, language and writing skill development.

At Royal Manor Elementary, the goal is for student to become technology literate. Technology is integrated into lesson plans and student learning. Technology standards, based on the state standards, provide concepts that are embedded within all curricular areas. This curricular integration involves the infusion of technology as a tool to enhance learning in content areas.
