Brunswick District and Curriculum
The schools in Brunswick carefully align their curriculum with the standards that are set by the state of Maine. Standards are designed to ensure that students in Maine receive the best possible education that prepares them for college and careers. A strong emphasis is placed on Literacy because no child can be successful in other subjects without reading and writing skills. Common Core Standards focus on Math and Literacy and integrate the learning from these subjects with other content areas.
We currently cover the following Brunswick-area school district: Brunswick School Department.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brunswick District Curriculum
Students learn the basics of literacy by learning to recognize and write letters, as well as learning the sounds of each letter. Students learn listening skills be hearing stories read out loud and answering questions about the stories. Teachers use different strategies to help students to achieve a strong Literacy foundation so that they can be successful in the following grades, where new skills will be built on the skills learned in previous grades.
Mathematics is also an important subject in the curriculum used at Brunswick public schools. Mathematics is part of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) program that prepares students not only for college, but for the competitive career field decisions that face them upon high school graduation. Mathematics is a global language and is critical for students to know. Like in Language Arts/literacy, teachers start with teaching the basics of number recognition, adding and subtracting using objects and grouping objects according to shapes or colors.

Chalk Talk: What Skills Will Your High Schooler Need for Employment?
Getting a job is a big step in your child's life and there are certain “employability skills” that employers require of their employees. Employers require good communication skills; written, spoken, listening. Your child will need to develop skills in collaboration and teamwork, as most jobs will require that their employees be able to work well with others. Employers also want people who have skills in planning and organizing and they want employees to be self-motivated, with enterprise and initiative. The increasing technological world in which we live means that your child will need to have skills in current technology, depending on the career he might be pursuing. Most high schools have vocational courses where they will learn these skills. Make sure that your child has the opportunities for vocational training and classes that teach employability skills.
