Over the last few years, we have determined the West Fork essential standards and have gone through curriculum adoptions that affect every student on our campus. Our curriculum committees understand that selecting guaranteed viable curriculum for our students is a critical step in their educational success and for that reason, each curriculum resource we choose is vetted by a team of teaching professionals for quality assurance and adherence to the Arkansas State Standards. For more information on our curriculum, including how it is created and chosen, please contact me at award@wftigers.org.
