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.
