Southwest Elementary School Curriculum

Southwest Elementary is proud of its tradition of academic excellence. We provide a challenging and enriching educational program with a well-rounded curriculum that meets the needs of all levels of learners. In addition to the core academics, our students receive one hundred fifty minutes of physical education instruction per week. Students also have weekly art and music classes. We have a S.T.E.A.M./gifted education program which focuses on providing critical thinking and enrichment experiences in support of the core academics with an added emphasis on technology integration. Our exceptional student education program also meets the needs of all students on an Individualized Education Plan. We also provide after school ELA and Math tutoring for grades 3-5.

In accord with the Florida and Federal Department of Education, our curriculum follows the Florida Core Standards. To view more specific information about the curriculum content of each grade level and each subject area, click on the link below to see our curriculum maps.
