-About Us-

THE MUSEUM SCHOOL is a tuition-free, inclusive, public charter school that serves students from all over San Diego in Kindergarten through 8th grade. While learning to read, write, do mathematics and science, “learning to learn” is our capstone skill, supported by our “Community Goals” of becoming responsible citizens, productive workers, creative healthy individuals, problem solvers and self-directed learners. The Museum School’s curriculum seeks to go beyond the basics by teaching kids how to learn and opening opportunities to understand why they are learning. Project-based departments and enriching classes such as art, music, sewing, movement, and drama are part of the regular curriculum and students participate in frequent study trips to museums and educational institutions throughout the community.

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

Museum School is excited to share that our students will now be able to use a new digital Math and Reading program called i-Ready. Below, you will find information about the program and how we will be using it in the classroom. 

What is i-Ready? 

i-Ready is an online program that will help us determine your child’s strengths and areas for growth, personalize their learning, and monitor their progress throughout the school year. i-Ready allows us to meet your child where they are and provides us with data to inform instruction. 

The i-Ready Diagnostic is an adaptive assessment that adjusts its questions to suit your child’s needs. Each item a student receives is based on their answer to the previous question. For example, a series of correct answers will result in slightly harder questions, while a series of incorrect answers will yield slightly easier ones. The purpose of this is not to give your child a score or grade but to determine how to best support their learning. 

i-Ready Instruction provides students with lessons based on their individual strengths and areas for growth. These lessons are interactive and provide strategic supports to keep your child engaged as they learn. 

To support your child’s learning in Online Instruction, you can: 


Thank you for your continued support and for being a partner in your child’s learning! We look forward to sharing i-Ready information with you throughout the year. If you have any questions about i-Ready, please do not hesitate to contact your teacher. You can also learn more about i-Ready by visiting i-ReadyCentral.com/FamilyCenter.
