Philosophy:

The Chagrin Falls Exempted Village School District is committed to the development of mathematical thinkers, who experience math and engage in deep problem-solving beginning in kindergarten. While the Ohio Department Education’s K-12 Standards in Mathematics yield the content of student learning (the * what*), the thoughtful selection of teaching approaches, programs, resources, and experiences within our district ensure that the curriculum (the

*) meets the needs of all of our students.*
