While trying to describe the curriculum my school uses I found myself struggling to find the appropriate verb to use. Do I say:

My school runs the CIE curriculum.


My school follows the CIE curriculum.


My school runs on the CIE curriculum.

So my question is what is the most appropriate verb to use in this context?

Thank you in advanced :)

You could say "follows" or "uses". But "run" is a verb that isn't usually associated with "curriculum".
