Elementary (K-4)

MSSE is committed to maintaining a quality academic program that provides for the continued spiritual, intellectual, social, physical, psychological and moral growth of all students. MSSE follows the guidelines set forth by the State of California and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Teachers follow the state standards and the archdiocesan guidelines in forming a comprehensive curriculum map for each subject, at each grade level.Students receive grade appropriate instruction in Religion, Math, Language Arts (Reading/Literature, English/Grammar, Writing, Vocabulary, Spelling), Social Studies, Science, Physical Education, Art, Music and Computer/Technology. Various extra-curricular activities help support student learning and achievement as well. 

Star Assessments are short tests that provide teachers with learning data. Star tests are computer adaptive, which means they adjust to each answer your child provides. This helps teachers get the best data to help your child in the shortest amount of testing time. Your child may take a Star test for early literacy, math, or reading.      Teachers analyze the data they get from Star Assessments to learn what students already know and what they are ready to learn next, to monitor student growth, and to determine which students may need additional help. Star Assessments are heavily researched and scientifically proven to help teachers guide each student on his or her unique path to mastery.If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call the office or speak with one of our faculty members!(from A parent’s guide to Star Assessments)
