Curriculum

The curriculum of Our Lady of Angels School attempts to ensure that academic success is attained by all of our students.  As a Catholic school, our program is permeated with a spirit of mutual respect and concern for each individual.  We utilize a curriculum developed by the Diocese of Cleveland in compliance with the Ohio State Standards.  The curriculum includes:

Religion, Language Arts (including English, Reading, Spelling, and Handwriting),

Mathematics, Science (including Health and Safety), Social Studies, Fine Arts (including Music and Art), Physical Education, and Spanish.

Religion is taught daily in all grades and students attend Mass weekly.  In addition, seasonal prayer services are held.  The Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation are celebrated as a parish event through parish and in-school preparation.

Technology can be found throughout our school. A fleet of over 100 wireless laptop computers are available for class use, allowing students in grades kindergarten through eight to utilize the Internet for educational and research purposes. In addition, every classroom is equipped with a Smart Board or ActivBoard and projector to enhance student learning.

At Our Lady of Angels School children participate in standardized testing as one way to measure success.  We use a nationally recognized test called the Iowa Test of Basic Skills.  It is a nationally standardized achievement test that is given to students in grades one through eight.  Students are assessed in reading, language, and math. We also participate in the State of Ohio required testing.

At Our Lady of Angels School we are concerned about the individual progress of each child.  Our teachers individualize lesson plans around the strengths and challenges that our students face.  Our goal is to take each student to the next level of learning.
