Elementary MathThe Great Valley School District Elementary Math Curriculum revisions took place in 2013-2014 and were prompted by the new Pennsylvania Common Core Standards. We are confident that our revised curriculum provides students with a strong foundation in the basic skills, a deep understanding of number sense, and enhanced problem solving skills. Like many Chester County school districts and others across the state and nation, we will be using the Math in Focus Program to support our math instruction.This web site will be used to provide information to parents about our elementary math curriculum. Please use the links below for more information:Videos are being added regularly to continue to provide support to parents and students at home.
