Medford District and Curriculum
The majority of Medford residents will attend Patchogue-Medford Central School District, with small portions attending South Country Central School District and Longwood Central School District. The districts that serve Medford students offer a challenging curriculum based on the New York State (NYS) Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS). These standards provide the foundation for literacy and competency with numbers, while preparing students for success beyond the classroom. Each district provides its students with special education and academic intervention services.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Medford District Curriculum
Beginning with kindergarten, students receive essential core academic instruction that prepares them for each subsequent grade, up to high school graduation. At the primary level, students will also take courses in art, music, and physical education, beyond the core curriculum. They have many opportunities to explore through technology and media/library education. As they progress to the middle grades, instruction specifically meets the needs of young adolescents, who require social and emotional nurturing, in addition to academic support.
The secondary curriculum is specifically designed to help students plan for post-secondary education and career. To do so, each district offers Advanced Placement (AP), honors courses, and career and technical training. Departments within the high schools consist of art, business education, computer science, English language arts, health, languages others than English, English as a second language, mathematics, music, physical education, reading, science, social studies, and technology. Students at Patchogue-Medford and South Country can take college-level courses for credit, and Longwood offers its students alternative educational opportunities.

Chalk Talk: The Role of Magnet Schools
Magnet schools are not just for students deemed gifted and talented; they provide an opportunity for students to explore learning that interests them. Magnet schools are public, K-12 institutions that present a particular focus within their curricula. For example, some magnet schools highlight English language arts and communications, some the arts and music, while others emphasize learning in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). Regardless of the focus, all magnet schools offer required instruction mandated by state education departments, in all subjects. These schools are important, because they serve students who demonstrate a specific ability or interest in a subject area. These schools typically have more resources—both material and people—than traditional public schools. They are great for providing diversity to a campus, because students from various locales pool into one location (urban, suburban, and rural). Magnet schools also help with issues like overcrowding, because they provide an additional facility for learning. Students need balance and a well-rounded education, but learning in specified curricula is necessary to hone specific skills and foster an interest in a particular field.
