Reading, Writing, and Math Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment

The teachers and administrators at Lincoln Street School are committed to implementing curricula that are aligned to the NH College and Career Ready Standards and the Common Core State Standards.  The Core Standards are based on the principles of College and Career Readiness and have been designed to allow for more depth and rigor in content and instruction, as well as ensuring students a consistent education from one state or school to another.

Formal Assessment
Several standardized and/or formal assessment tools are used at Lincoln Street School:
In the spring of 2015, Exeter's students participated in the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA).  The SBA is a computer-based test aligned to the Core Standards.  We are expecting results of this assessment to be released by the New Hampshire Department of Education sometime during the Fall of 2015.

Prior to 2015, students participated in the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP), which was given annually in October to all students.  NECAP results are available on the NH Department of Education's website. 


One School, One Book!

This is an exciting school-wide program that began in January 2013.  All teachers read aloud the same book to their students during the same time period. Students and teachers look forward to the opportunities for cross-grade-level interactions. 

The 2014-2015 book was Half a Chance by Cynthia Lord.
