Connetquot Central School District’s instructional program strives to prepare each student to thrive in the twenty-first century by developing academic understandings in the following content areas: the arts, economics, English Language Arts, geography, government, history, mathematics, physical education, reading, science, and world languages. The District’s instructional approach incorporates the following themes into core subject areas: global awareness; financial, economic, business, and entrepreneurial literacy; civic literacy; health literacy. Connetquot’s students exercise a range of functional and critical thinking skills related to information, media, and technology. Our focus on creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration is essential to prepare students for their future.
The ability to navigate complex life and work environments in this competitive information age requires students to develop life and career skills, including flexibility and adaptability; imitative and self-direction; social and cross-cultural skills; productivity and accountability; leadership and responsibility. The District embraces the concept that learning is a life-long process. To this end, the District encourages all of its constituents to participate in a wide range of activities to support these instructional goals.
