Our basic units of study are as follows: Wonders for Reading/Language Arts, Math Expressions for Math, My World by Savvas for Social Studies, STEMscopes for Science, and Second Step for Social Emotional Learning (SEL). While focusing on the individual child our educational program emphasizes the critical relationship among these areas of study.

We also support students using a Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) and create targeted interventions to meet student need.  Students are engaged in small group instruction that is differentiated to match individual student needs.  Students have access to online resources via Clever.

Students at Jane Addams also participate in physical education, music, and art on a weekly basis.

We also have recently launched the Student 1:1 Initiative.  For more information on the District 89 Student 1:1 Initiative see District 89 – Student 1:1 Initiative (maywood89.org)
