Gilford District and Curriculum
Like other schools throughout the state of New Hampshire, the Gilford School District follows the standards outlined in the New Hampshire Grade Level and Grade Span Expectations, as well as the Common Core Curriculum Standards. The Common Core Curriculum Standards integrate both skills and content. For example, the content taught by teachers for English Language Arts might include American literature and cross-cultural stories, allowing students to broaden their perspectives while also gaining critical thinking skills.
We currently cover the following Gilford-area school district: Gilford School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gilford District Curriculum
In terms of skills in elementary math for example, students are expected to learn decimals, subtraction, and addition. However the standards only serve as guidelines and teachers, for instance, are not given set method for instructing on each standard which allows teachers to determine the best means to convey information to their students. Instead the Common Core standards can be seen as a set of goals or expectations for a teacher to assist the students in becoming lifelong learners who are capable of critical and analytic thought.
Similarly, the Grade-Level Expectations has a proposed framework that covers key topics such as mathematics, reading, science and writing. These frameworks are based on the rationale that students must be prepared for a constantly changing world in terms of technology, work-related competencies and overall livelihood. The broad goal of the curriculum though is to foster learning as a way to enable students to become positive influences on their society.

Chalk Talk: Getting Ready for College One Step at a Time
Contrary to popular belief, preparing for college isn’t a race to the finish line. Instead, take your time in the process. Schedule your college placement tests such as the SAT and ACT far in advance. The logic behind this is if you do not do as well as expected the first time, there will still be time to test again. Also, it is a good idea to schedule interviews with college alumni far in advance of the application deadline. If you wish for your interview to be included in your admission package, then be sure to schedule your interview months ahead of time so that your interviewer will be able to fit you into his or her schedule. Next, approach your guidance counselors early on to ask for recommendations. Your guidance counselor will be inundated with students asking for similar information; get it done early and you will be able to check off one more step from the grueling application process.
