Fayetteville District and Curriculum
The Cumberland County Schools curriculum goals for students are a proactive effort made by teachers in the district to highlight, on a daily basis, that students are capable of achieving and exceeding high academic standards.
We currently cover the following Fayetteville-area school district: Cumberland County Schools.
Schools in Fayetteville include:
Vanstory Hills Elementary School is located at 400 Foxhall Road, Fayetteville, NC 28303. Vanstory Hills covers second grade through fifth grade. Contact Vanstory Hills at (910) 483-0809. From their website, the Vanstory Hill mission is to provide, “the very best educational opportunities for all students. Our goal is to preserve the rich tradition and history of our school while embracing strategies that will ensure continued growth for each student.” As the Vanstory Hills students strive to improve continually, they are dedicated to designing an ecosystem for learning that encourages qualities such as: achievement through rigorous instruction, getting the community involved, multiple different strategies for learning, dependant on the pupil, a safe and caring environment, both for students and staff, and finally, an appreciation and understanding of different cultures. Like other schools in North Carolina, Vanstory derives its curriculum from the North Carolina state standards. This provides a consistent basis for which learning is to be gauged upon. This means that, for example, grade 3 students in Language Arts should be learning to read at their level independently for sustained periods of time, and they should be able to use prior knowledge and experiences to pontificate on the text.
71st Classical Middle School is located at 6830 Raeford Road, Fayetteville, NC 28304. 71st Classical covers sixth grade through eighth grade. Contact 71st Classical at (910) 864-0092. The mission of 71st Classical is, from their website, to provide, “an exceptional education for all of our students by providing the academic rigor necessary for continued success. We also strive to emphasize character education and good citizenship through a prescribed dress code and a student code of conduct in an environment of high expectations. We believe that each student is an important individual with unique intellectual, emotional, social, and physical needs.” The dedication of the staff and administration is shown through their consistently high scores on the North Carolina end of grade tests and their extracurriculars. Their curriculum and instruction are flexible, using a variety of activities and strategies designed to provide for differences in learning styles and abilities, as well as providing plenty of varied opportunities for students to demonstrate their knowledge. Similarly to other schools in the state, this curriculum begins at the state level, with the North Carolina Standards for Education. This means that, for example, students in grade 8 science should be able to understand physical principles such as classifying matter as elements, compounds, or mixtures, physical properties of elements, physical and chemical changes, and explain the idea of atoms and balanced chemical equations.
Cross Creek Early College High School is located at 1200 Murchison Road, Fayetteville, NC 28301. Cross Creek covers ninth grade through twelfth grade. Contact Cross Creek at (910) 672-1499. The mission of Cross Creek, as stated on their website, is to be, “a progressive, public school of choice… Our goal is to improve the college-going rate and success in the college of traditionally underrepresented groups by exposing them to a rigorous curriculum which includes college coursework beginning in the sophomore year.” Their vision also includes having all students able to take honours courses, daily emotional development instruction surrounding topics such as relationships, respect, responsibility, and character, to have a culture of academic focus and individual attention, and finally, the potential to gain 60 college credit hours before graduating from high school. Just as in other schools around North Carolina, Cross Creek bases its curriculum on the state standards for learning. This sets concrete goals for students in a finite amount of time, which allows their progress to be measured evenly. For example, students in Algebra I should be able to interpret expressions, identify linear, exponential, and quadratic expressions as well as their terms, factors, coefficients, and exponents.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fayetteville District Curriculum
The schools use a model for curriculum which employs standards and objectives to specify what students will learn each year. In Math, Science, English and History, students begin with fundamentals and by high school are able to analyze texts, work with quantitative data, perform science experiments, and conduct original research. Each subject focuses on major strands of learning within the subject so that students develop an in-depth understanding of the subjects’ relevance.
Advanced students are taught at a faster pace than other students; more is expected of them to get the work done. Thorough outcomes and presentations of their work should show how much effort and research was put into projects. The gifted students have a curriculum that will keep their interests peaked at high levels in all subject areas for superior learning. The goal is for advanced students to become independent thinkers and keep their creative thought processes flowing indefinitely.

Chalk Talk: What Is College Really Like?
Most high school graduates are nervous in the beginning about leaving home and heading to their chosen colleges but what does all that really mean? For many it is “freedom” away from guardians and parents, no curfews and becoming independent. High school students definitely are seeking to get an education, that is priority number one but what they don’t realize is with all that perceived freedom you have to really set ground rules for yourself and not overindulge in a lifestyle that can affect your grades, your sleep and even well being. The college experiences should be that of learning, getting to know your new environment and exploring the campus and becoming comfortable with where you will be living for the next four or five years.
