Our educational program is structured around a small class size of a maximum 20 students per class, with a dynamic and integrated curriculum that is aligned with the California Core Curriculum Standards and Assessment. A comprehensive infusion of technology will serve to stimulate student’s enthusiasm and interest in the learning process. Students will learn practical applications of concepts and theories that provide an opportunity to experience success in all academic areas. GCS strives to promote social and emotional maturity with the skills needed for a smooth transition from the elementary phase of the educational process to the secondary phase, and positive citizenship.
The Guidance Charter School (GCS) provides a rigorous educational program that emphasizes the development of basic skills in reading, writing, speaking and computation; development of a repertoire of problem-solving skills, through understanding of technology with a development of global perspectives.
Our educational program serves students enrolled in grades K-8, with a student-centered curriculum which addresses student’s individual needs, developmental levels, and diverse learning styles. We offer well rounded curriculum based upon the concepts and goals identified in the State framework. The curriculum adheres to the adopted district-wide “Core Curriculum” of Palmdale School District (PSD), with the flexibility to incorporate supplemental materials with local board approval.
