San Francisco Unified School District - Charles Drew Elementary School
Dr. Charles Drew College Preparatory Academy offers a challenging learning environment for students in PreK thru 3rd grade. The academic program emphasizes the use of the Blackboard Configuration which is a visual illustration of the teachers' daily goals for the students. The teaching staff works collaboratively to offer an academically challenging curriculum and foster the emotional and social growth of each child. Our rigorous academic program includes experiments in science, hands-on math instruction, interdisciplinary projects and quarterly field trips. Computer instruction begins in Pre-Kindergarten to enhance computer literacy and integrate technology into the curriculum. The early childhood program emphasizes literature based reading instruction with studies of students' ethnic heritage and maintains the emphasis on active learning in all subjects.
