Union Day School Curriculum

Curriculum at Union Day School is rigorous, engaging, and delivered by skilled teachers in supportive classroom environments


UDS K-5 students receive instruction in Singapore Math®, a balanced literacy approach through Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop, comprehensive and multi-sensory handwriting and cursive instruction through Handwriting Without Tears®, inquiry-based science, and American Heritage: An Adventure in Liberty (a Social Studies supplemental curriculum on U.S history). Beginning in kindergarten, all students will take Spanish, as well as Music, Art, and Physical Education every year.

UDS takes an inquiry and project-based approach to classroom learning, allowing students to build critical thinking, research, problem solving, and communication skills while engaging more deeply with topics and ideas that spark their love of learning.

UDS is proud to be undertaking the authorization process to become an International Baccalaureate (IB) School that offers the IB Middle Years Program (MYP) to all middle school students, beginning in sixth grade. The IB MYP begins in the 2019-2020 academic year. Please see disclaimer below.

Union Day school is currently applying for candidacy status to be able to offer the IB MYP in grades 6-8. Until such time that UDS is accepted as an IB MYP candidate school, Union Day claims no affiliation with the IB organization and our ability to offer the IB MYP at UDS is contingent on being accepted as a candidate school. UDS will be informed of its candidacy status in June 2019.
