The PS7 curriculum is driven by clear grade-level academic standards based on the Common Core State Standards. Teachers use regularly-scheduled assessments to measure how well scholars are mastering these standards.

PS7 uses knowledge about scholar skills to shape whole-class instruction, small-group work, and one-to-one tutoring. Using individual scholar data, instruction is targeted to better meet individual scholar needs. Teachers do not simply work to get through a textbook or instructional materials; rather, they establish a big goal for scholars, diagnose skills and needs in order to target instruction appropriately and maximize achievement toward the set goal.
