The educational program at Bache-Martin focuses on preparing our students to meet the rigor of the Common Core Standards. The faculty does so by focusing on creating critical thinkers by focusing their questioning techniques to allow our students the opportunity to think about what they are learning, sharing their perspectives and coming to conclusions independently and in groups.
The Philadelphia School District’s Core Curriculum in Literacy, Math, Social Studies and Science is used in all grades from K-8. The Core Curriculum is a rigorous and dynamic curriculum that utilizes the Benchmark Testing Program and other assessment procedures to monitor and augment student instruction at regular intervals throughout the school year. The federal No Child Left Behind program requires yearly testing to assess the school’s overall educational quality.
The Special Programs at Bache-Martin have been developed over the last twenty years and best represent the unique educational experience provided by the school. K-8 Students receive daily/weekly instruction in the following programs:
General Music Instruction
Instrumental Music (brass, percussion, strings)
Reading Enrichment for Advanced Students
Bache-Martin also offers a mentally gifted program and special education for those students who qualify.
In addition to the regular Education Curriculum, Bache-Martin has established partnerships with a number of local and national organizations to foster well-rounded students and instill the foundation for a life-long love of learning.
