The KOR Education School curriculum is guided by E. D. Hirsch's Core Knowledge Sequence (K-8th).
Through the use of classical and modern literature, we emphasize the essential skills of reading, writing, and oratory;
and extend these to include critical thinking and creativity to establish an ideal climate that supports the enjoyment of learning.
As students attain proficiency in reading, they are encouraged to pursue a wide variety of written works including fiction and nonfiction, historical and biographical literature, as well as poetry.
Students are engaged in daily writing activities and encouraged to express their ideas and thoughts not only through written words but in a variety of ways.
A foundation in mathematics begins with the hands-on approach of Math Their Way and is continued with Singapore Math.
The basics are extended with games and activities that put learned skills into practice.
History is introduced through quality literature and studied in a linear fashion, placing key men, women, and events on the time line of history.
We focus on the history of Western Civilization, the American Nation, and the state of Texas.
Other civilizations and cultures are studied as Western Civilization encounters them.

Our science program encourages students not only to learn objective facts, but to gain increasing awe and wonder as they appreciate firsthand how things work.
They study physical, life, earth and space science; the steps of scientific investigation; as well as the history of science, through hands-on exploration and quality literature.
Our goal is to teach our students a desire for knowledge and understanding without eliminating wonder, beauty, and moral conviction.
