Standards / Benchmarks


Christ the King School is fully accredited by the Iowa Department of Education. Our school follows the Diocese of Des Moines Standards and Benchmarks for all curriculum areas. All faculty members include references to the Standards in lesson plans, curriculum maps and student assessments.

Christ the King School will also be following the directives for the Iowa Core Curriculum. The Iowa Core Curriculum is about teaching and learning. The Core Curriculum provides the core concepts and skills all children in the state of Iowa should experience. It also provides teachers with ways to integrate the Core Curriculum in to the classroom and beyond. Christ the King School faculty members are receiving ongoing training on the Characteristics of Effective Instruction and the Essential Concepts and Skill Sets.
