The top ranked schools in Colorado are using Core Knowledge as their foundation for student success.  Callan Rose applies the Core Knowledge curriculum to the pre-school level.  Because Callan Rose is an art based school, we also implement the Core Knowledge Art and Music programs.  “The Core Knowledge Sequence is a detailed outline of specific content to be taught in preschool through 8th grade in the areas of language arts, history (American and world), geography, music, visual arts, mathematics, and science.  Core Knowledge responds to the idea that elementary and middle schools need a solid, specific, shared core curriculum in order to help children establish strong foundations of knowledge, grade by grade.  To get more information about Core Knowledge, please see the Core Knowledge Foundation website at”
