Medfield District and Curriculum
Medfield Public Schools mission is to—in conjunction with families and the community—“create a dynamic and collegial learning environment” that will help students be highly successful in a changing global society and become responsible, contributing citizens. Students who score below a certain score in English language arts and/or math are given an Educational Proficiency Plan (EPP), which spells out and evaluates a student’s strengths and weaknesses in these content areas. Additionally, there are advanced and accelerated learning opportunities for students. These offerings are further compounded by a range of extracurricular learning that connects to students personal and professional interests.
We currently cover the following Medfield-area school district: Medfield Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Medfield District Curriculum
Medfield High’s school-wide learner outcomes include communicating effectively (writing for a variety of purposes, reading actively and critically, and speaking confidently), solving problems, and demonstrating personal and civic responsibility (including working well both independently and cooperatively). The high school’s core values related to academics include a challenging curriculum and expectations for all students, lifelong learning, excellence in academics, and achievement of personal success.
The high school’s Curriculum Guides—in addition to listing and describing the courses—details the philosophy and objectives for each of the following academic departments: business and technology education, English, math, performance arts, science, social studies, visual arts, wellness and family and consumer sciences, and world languages. For example, the English department’s philosophy is for students to understand the importance of language and literature in their lives; to become competent in the skills of reading, writing, speaking, and listening; and to develop critical thinking skills and effective oral and written communication.

Although the initiative hasn't been without challenges, student engagement has dramatically improved and, with the help of professional development, teachers have become more confident in using the iPads in their instruction.

Chalk Talk: The Role of the Health Curriculum
The high school health curriculum focuses on helping students develop advocacy skills that they can use to address an issue of importance. Students learn how to develop a message to the public in order to promote positive health behaviors. This includes researching and utilizing effective communication techniques in order to reach a targeted audience. Accuracy of information is emphasized, and as such, students utilize skills acquired in other core classes, such as evaluation of information, to ensure the messages they create are accurate. Nutritional issues are explored in depth as well. Learners investigate various types of food products that are available to them, and evaluate the nutritional value of each. Students also look at the basic food groups and come to an understanding of how much of each type of food they need each day to be optimally healthy. In encouraging others to improve their decision-making skills when it comes to health, students also enhance their own ability to make healthy choices.
