Curriculum & Instruction

The Curriculum & Instruction Department at Rhodes School for the Performing Arts ensures that our students are being taught the same skills as their public-school peers. The department provides identifiable measurable results based on objectives to help determine student progress and academic achievement; keeps our students competitive when compared to others across the state; and ensures that our students can be successful in any educational setting, public or private.

Science Fair Information 

It’s that time of year…RSPA’s Science Fair! This is a time for our scholars to apply their critical thinking skills. They get to ask questions and derive the answer through experimentation. A science project challenges a student to solve a problem/answer a question using the scientific method or design process. It is a great way to excite children about science, teach them to think like scientists, develop organizational skills, and enhance their writing and oral presentation skills. Lessons have been worked into the curriculum to explain the process of conducting a science investigation to guide them on their way.

Please review the Schedule of Assignments for our 2nd-8th grade scholars below. Kindergarten-1st grade scholars will work on a classroom project together to share on Science Fair night!
