Academics & Activities


The curriculum is aligned and cross-referenced in four core academic subjects with the Michigan Curriculum Framework and/or the Common Core State Standards. The curriculum provides equitable and challenging learning experiences that ensure all students have sufficient opportunities to develop learning, thinking, and life skills that lead to success at the next level. The district utilizes the following as universal direct instructional curriculum resources such as Big Ideas, Reading Street, My Work by Pearson along with a host of supplemental support to individualize learning using Do the Math and Moby Max.
Additional services providers such as Sylvan Learning Center, Reading Core, and paraprofessionals provide Tiered instructional support to students to improve their reading and mathematics performance.
Complimentary School Curriculum Programming
Financial Literacy
Young Millionaire University isn't your typical personal finance class. The goal is to focus on the basics of how money works. The concept taught in the YMU curriculum empowers students in grades 3-8 to take charge of their future. Students get a practical hands-on experience that prepares them for everything they need to succeed.
Behavioral Support Management Skills
Gender-based groups of students in grades 6-8 participate in a workshop that will help promote positive self-image and life coping skills to combat self-destructive behavior. A health professional conducts mental health social groups for students in need of behavioral support.
