Academics At Hawthorne
Hawthorne Academy is in its 2nd decade of implementation of the Core Knowledge curriculum. This broad curriculum provides the basis for our instruction in language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, art, and music. The widening spiral of knowledge provided by this sequence of instruction ensures that each Hawthorne student will have a strong foundation and will continue to build on previous learning and surpass the expectations set forth in the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. Our goal for success on state assessments (e.g., TAKS) is not only student mastery- our students strive to achieve Commended Performance status. Our teachers share their knowledge of Core curriculum at national conferences and through presentations to educators throughout the country. To find out more about the Core Knowledge curriculum please visit the Core Knowledge Website. For more information on the TEKS, please visit the website of the Texas Education Agency.
