Shady Lane
Elementary School
Academic Brief:
At Shady Lane Elementary, students and teachers participate in active learning. Shady Lane students come to school ready to learn, lead, and achieve. Teachers strive to make learning fun and meaningful for each child.

The teachers at Shady Lane are guided by the designated Columbus City Schools Curriculum in all academic subject areas as well as the Unified Arts Classes. All teachers have begun implementing the new Common Core State Standards and 21st Century Learning Skills. These standards are a national initiative adopted to ensure our students are college and career ready when they graduate from high school. Our district curriculum has been enhanced to align with these new standards, which offer our students more time to focus on depth of understanding the topics being covered.
Shady Lane is part of the Walnut Ridge Feeder Pattern. Shady Lane will focus on increasing literacy (writing, reading, listening, speaking) at all grade grade levels and in every subject area through rigorous instruction. Students will also have daily opportunities to think critically and collaborate with other students.

Reading Program
Our students receive their reading instruction through Story Town which is a comprehensive reading and language arts program. This program has been designed with explicit and systematic instruction in the areas of reading, fluency, writing, listening, speaking and language. Teachers have instructional choices that involve rigorous activities and text complexity. Our students are deeply engaged with literature through utilizing reading strategies to read on grade and above level texts.

Math Program
In an effort to improve students' math fluency and problem solving skills, our teachers are providing opportunities for students to think and preserve through problem solving. Students are immersed in rich mathematical tasks that focus on critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication. These 21st Century Skills will prepare students for their future endeavors as productive members of society.
