In keeping with the DoDEA mission to provide an exemplary education that inspires and prepares all our students for success in a dynamic, global environment, the DoDEA Curriculum Content Standards and the Community Strategic Plan (CSP) provide the framework for academic excellence. Our curriculum translates the standards in to a sequenced series of statements about what students will learn through their school experiences.
The DoDDS Education Program Development Plan provides periodic review of the curriculum for each subject area. The plan includes evaluating each program, revising objectives, selecting instructional materials, and providing in-service training for teachers. Textbooks, library books, and supplementary materials are selected by curriculum committees made up of teachers, administrators, and subject area specialists.
LMS Curriculum Programs
The curriculum at Lester Middle School is designed to meet the needs of students who are making the transition from childhood to adolescence. The curriculum provides for continued emphasis on the basics and for opportunities to explore new subject areas and develop emerging personal skills. Language Arts, Math, Reading Science, and Social Studies are emphasized during the three years. The exploratory and elective program allows students to experience different subjects, yet provides for individual interests. We offer Algebra I, Geometry, Japanese, Chinese, and Spanish as a high school credit course with recommendations.
