A full spectrum of services and support for learning

Serving students: The MCPS curriculum serves all learners. It includes the basics — language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and the arts. It supports exceptional children — those with disabilities, the highly able, and English language learners. It offers a comprehensive early childhood program, career/technology specialties, and also serves students who fare best in alternative programs.

Serving staff: Instructional projects and tools related to curriculum and instruction.

The two main offices that support the curriculum at MCPS are:
