Curriculum and Instruction

Where students come first!

In meeting the challenges of educating each Gahanna student in the most meaningful, appropriate manner, the Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools have established classroom curriculum to meet the individual needs of all students.

In order to accomplish this, the curriculum department works with teams of teachers to develop courses of study in core academic areas that incorporate the new State of Ohio Content Standards and National Standards from each respective field. Each Gahanna Course of Study is fully aligned with the state and national standards; yet, also exceeds the minimum requirements set forth by the Ohio Department of Education.

In Gahanna-Jefferson Schools, we have a history of a commitment to excellence. The district is driven by a single, primary focus--The Student Comes First!
