Curriculum

The focus of Nasha Shkola — a free, choice public school, open to all MN students — is to meet the unique educational needs of Slavic immigrant students, students of Russian descent, students interested in Russian language and culture and any other student choosing to enroll.

This K-12 school (starting as K-5) will utilize the Core Knowledge Sequence as a solid foundational base for the educational curriculum and a program in Russian Language, Heritage and Culture where all students will become proficient in both Russian and English. These opportunities are both new and unique for the Russian speaking community and also a unique opportunity for non-Russian speakers.  There are currently no other schools in the seven-county metropolitan with this focus.

In line with the Core Knowledge philosophy, the knowledge that students gain each year builds on the knowledge gained in prior years. Singapore Math stresses students’ foundational skills, teaching concepts verses process. Teaching conceptually lays a foundation, thus enabling all students to progress through advanced mathematics. Students as young as second grade begin learning multiplication and division and are performing simple pictorial algebra by fourth grade. There is a lot of student discussion about solving math problems. Quick mental calculation is stressed.

The Singapore approach teaches math concepts and encourages greater problem solving skills and creative thinking. Singapore Math takes on fewer concepts, about 10 each year, but children are expected to master them. The strong point of Singapore is the way basic concepts are presented, as there is always more than one approach. Singapore Math is an effective mix of drill and practice, word problems and mental calculation instruction connected to all important concepts. Singapore Math addresses the core math curriculum in a way that better prepares students for higher math.

Studies have shown that the study of a second language promotes a better understanding of other cultures and a unique perspective on the world.  Second language instruction has been shown to improve listening skills, enhance memory, and develop creativity, mental flexibility and higher order thinking.  In addition, students who learn a foreign language in elementary school demonstrate higher scores on standardized tests in language arts and math than those who do not. The Foreign Language program is for students to maintain and continue learning Russian or to begin learning Russian.

The Russian Language, Heritage and Culture Program will provide all students the opportunity to experience and learn about the rich culture of the Russian people. The goal of these intercultural classes is to preserve the Russian language, heritage, identity and help all students become bilingual – proficient in Russian and English.
