The Miriam Essentials Curriculum will address the whole child, ensuring that when each student leaves Miriam, they are ready to take on the next step of their journey
The four-year curriculum is comprised of five categories:
Health and Wellness
Relationships and Community
Each grade level team will include three dedicated staff members who will carry out this new curriculum. Students will meet for 30 minutes after advisory each morning, as well as 30 minutes before or after lunch (depending on each student’s schedule), to study the Essentials.
