Course Standards

Each Casco Bay High School course is built around ten to fifteen course standards. A course standard is a description of a long-term learning target that can be achieved during a particular course; they represent the essential things all students must know or be able to do in a course.
Each daily lesson is built around short-term learning targets which are the stepping stones towards course standards. Our standards-based grading language and scale is consistent with the scale that the state uses for the MHSA and is comparable to the 4.0 scale which is used in many schools and colleges.
