At R.I.S.E. International Center we realize that parents have different reasons for choosing our program.  In an effort to respect people who choose not to teach evolution, we suggest supplementing our science program with Apologia or using our program as you see fit.  Many of the topics in our program may be tied to national and state standards, but below is an outline of what is covered at each grade level so that you can pick and choose which parts you want to do and what you feel you need to supplement.  Our overall goal is to give children enough background knowledge through experimenting and forming hypotheses, and field experiences that they like scientists will be able to form their own understanding of how the world around them works.
