Wyoming Content & Performance Standards

The Park 6 curriculum adheres to state standards in all subjects, including the core areas of language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. We also offer instruction in art, career/technical programs, foreign language, music, and physical education. 

Wyoming Content and Performance Standards serve several purposes. Standards describe what students need to know and be able to do by the end of each grade level. They explain the knowledge, concepts, and skills that each student should acquire so that Wyoming students are college, career, or military ready by the time they graduate from high school. These expectations are communicated to students, parents, educators, and all other Wyoming stakeholders, and provide a common understanding among educators as to what students should learn at particular grades. Standards do not define all that can or should be taught; they simply outline end-of-year expectations for all students to help create equal opportunities to learn regardless of where the student lives (from the Wyoming Department of Education website).

State law requires that the standards in each content area be reviewed every nine years.
