Curriculum Overview

    The curriculum used by Chandler Unified School District and Rice Elementary is aligned to the Arizona State Standards and Journey 2025 Strategic Plan. These standards provide the framework for K-12 education, designed to provide students the knowledge, skills, and behaviors necessary to succeed in introductory college courses, in postsecondary workforce education, or directly in a job.

    Rice offers both Classic and CTA (Chandler Traditional Academy) programs which provide families a choice, based on each student's needs.


    Students also participate in physical education, general music, technology, and library education. Students in grade 5 and 6 have the option of choosing general music, band or orchestra as an elective.
