Meridian District and Curriculum
Joint School District No. 2 serves Meridian, Boise, Eagle, and Star, Idaho. The district prides itself on creating school cultures that support high student performance; addressing the needs of the whole child, striving for the highest quality instruction, and helping students find the best curricular pathways to successfully achieve their goals. Math instruction begins with the basics of understanding numbers, learning about different operations, using measurements, and gathering and interpreting data. As learning and cognitive abilities progress, students expand upon this base knowledge and begin to incorporate geometric and algebraic concepts in the latter part of elementary school, with full introduction of higher math emerging in middle school and high school.
We currently cover the following Meridian-area school district: Meridian School District.

Introductory Language Arts begins with guiding students through the basics of reading, including understanding phonemes, learning to decode words through syllables and context, and classifying words into categories.

Listening and speaking skills also receive attention to enhance overall communication achievement.

Chalk Talk: Everyday Hints for Parents to Support School Success
Just as adults appreciate being asked about how their day went; students can learn to enjoy it as well. Don't let your student get away with mumbling "fine" as they walk away from you; make checking in a time to engage in your child's daily academic life in a non-judgmental manner when possible. Know class schedules, favorite teachers, and upcoming events and projects. Remember to give appropriate praise for positive events and constructive criticism for not-so-positive ones. Keeping the line of communication about school as open as possible can bolster your child's academic success.
