Marie Curie Elementary is located in University City, a community named for its proximity to the University of California, San Diego. We serve close to 600 students in grades TK-5. The daily instructional program for all students at Curie consists of balanced literacy block, a mathematics program that teaches strategies and content through discussion, exploration, analysis, written language, direct instruction, and hands-on experimentation, a science program supplemented by hands-on Foss kits, and a social studies program that is integrated into the curriculum. Students also have art, music, and physical education as part of their weekly curriculum.
