All Montgomery County Public Schools must develop a School Improvement Plan (SIP) which is the school based response to the district’s work and student progress. SIPs outline the processes schools will operationalize to meet the district expectations. These goals are written intentionally using an antiracist and inclusive lens to meet the needs and to ensure that ALL students are learning and growing. Take a look at our school goals for literacy, math, well-being and culture and climate.

The goal of Fallsmead's mathematics program is for all students to achieve mathematical proficiency through the development of both conceptual understanding and procedural fluency by utilizing the Eureka Math Curriculum.
Fallsmead Elementary School's reading program addresses the process of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. These processes are the tools that enable students to effectively communicate. Through the integration of listening, speaking, reading, and writing, teachers create authentic and meaningful learning situations for students by utilizing the Benchmark Literacy Curriculum.
Social Studies instruction helps create literate, well-informed citizens who take an active role in a democratic society. Students critically examine past events and decisions and their impact and importance on present and future events.
The goal of science instruction at Fallsmead is to foster and encourage the natural curiosity of students as they explore and gain an understanding in the concepts of science through the New Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The NGSS were developed by states to improve science education for all students. The standards are rich in content and practice, arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education.
