Curriculum & Instruction

Lago Vista ISD curriculum and instruction is designed to challenge all learners and sets high standards for achievement. Through our locally developed curriculum, Lago Vista ISD is committed to providing students with a guaranteed and viable curriculum that prepares them for life after high school.


Philosophy of Curriculum & Instruction
Curriculum and instruction in Lago Vista ISD are guided by the following ideals:
  • Teachers are certified experts who are respected and deserve autonomy in return for performing at high levels. 
  • We trust that, as professionals, our teachers use effective teaching strategies to challenge students well beyond the state content standards. 
  • With such a vast breadth of material to cover, allowing teachers to determine priority standards for each unit allows for greater depth of the standards they deem most crucial. 
  • We live in an interdisciplinary world and the problems of the 21st century do not fall neatly into boxes. Content integration makes everyone’s content more relevant and meaningful to students. We all share the responsibility for student success. 
  • We are a professional community devoted to growing and excelling in our craft.
