The overall curriculum is designed in such a way as to help students acquire the knowledge attitudes and skills necessary for them to continue as thinking, learning, physically active, valued members of society.
The Nova Scotia Department of Education believes that the school program should "cross traditional subject boundaries and should not be the monopoly of any one discipline". To this end, the Department has identified six areas of learning: aesthetic, expression, citizenship, communication, personal development, problem solving and technological competence. In most cases, teachers have been supplied with Nova Scotia Department of Education curriculum guides related to their subject areas.
