We are pleased to offer a comprehensive and varied academic program for our

students. Our academic programming begins at the Pre-Kindergarten level where we offer two full-day classrooms. Our elementary building houses students in grades Pre-K through Grade 5. Maple Grove Junior/Senior High School is home for students in grades 6-12. Our middle level program serves students in grades 6-8 while our High School program serves students in grades 8-12.

In English Language Arts and Mathematics students in grades Pre-K thru 12 receive a rigorous, common core aligned curriculum which has been vertically aligned from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12. For students in grades K-8, this curriculum is delivered within the framework of a well established Response to Intervention (RtI) program. Student progress is closely monitored and appropriate intervention and/or enrichment is targeted directly to student needs.

At the middle level we offer opportunities for students to accelerate in Mathematics providing Algebra to 8th grade students.  Also at the middle level, curriculum was accelerated in the area of science allowing 8th grade students to begin earning high school credit for Living Environment in their eighth grade year. 

For students in grades 9th-12th grade rigorous we are pleased to offer a robust selection of college credit bearing courses via Advanced Placement and JCC College Connections offerings.  Elective course opportunities continue to be a priority to meet the interest/needs of students for high school age students in the areas of Music, Art, Technology, Business, and Family and Consumer Sciences.

Integration of technology into our academic program has been a point of emphasis for the past several years.  The Bemus Point Central School District has a 1:1 Chromebook program. The utilization of the Chromebook devices along with Google Apps for Education, has fostered collaboration between students, teachers, and parents, increased student engagement, and supports the development of important digital literacy skills and knowledge for our students.

While supporting our district’s mission, we work to ensure our curriculum is correlated with the New York State Next Generation Learning Standards as well as provide professional development to achieve district and building improvement goals.
