The Rochester City School District's academic program is aligned with rigorous state and national learning standards in support of high student achievement. (For more about learning standards, visit www.emsc.nysed.gov.)
The District uses a coherent, aligned curriculum districtwide (Grades 5 to 9, ELA and Math), an essential attribute of high-achieving schools and districts. Specific academic goals are in place for all grades and subjects, and those goals are consistent from school to school. The district is in the process of establishing a fully aligned curriculum in all subject areas.
