Sassarini Elementray School follows California State and Sonoma Valley Unified School District (SVUSD) guidelines. The school district has adopted content standards in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics. We utilize multiple measures of assessment in both Language Arts and Mathematics. These assessments determine whether students have met or exceeded grade level standards. They also inform teachers about individual students needs and strengths.

Wonders provides a strong foundation in early literacy skills, access to fiction and nonfiction texts, as well as a writing component. The Wonders program also includes Wonders for English Learners, an English Language Development program, as well as WonderWorks, a literacy intervention program.
