Millis District and Curriculum
Millis Public Schools contains three schools and over 1,400 students. Millis Public Schools has created curriculum brochures for each grade level (elementary school) or content area (secondary grade levels). The curriculum brochures for the elementary level describe the skills and knowledge students are expected to gain by the end of the school year in English language arts and math. Students gain academic knowledge and tools, but also develop social, emotional, and behavioral competencies that will serve them throughout their lives. They also acquire strong collaboration and communication skills that are so important for success in the modern world.
We currently cover the following Millis-area school district: Millis Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Millis District Curriculum
The expectations for math are broken down into topics such as operations and algebraic thinking, measurement and data, geometry, and number and operations in base 10. They also define the universal Standards for Mathematical Practice, which list the steps for students to be effective problem solvers. The curriculum brochures for the secondary grade levels break down the essential understandings by grade level (middle and high school are separate). Some of these brochures are divided by courses and include a description of the department’s philosophy.
The district incorporates blended learning, which allows students to learn in the classroom while also having access to classroom materials away from school through online tools such as Blackboard and Moodle. This model supports project- and problem-based learning, the enhancement of the curriculum, electronic assessment of student work, online collaboration, organization and study skills, a self-directed learning approach, students with special needs, and the personalization of student learning.

Chalk Talk: English Class in High School
High school students are required to take four years of English, which is usually some combination of American and World Literature courses. Students will read grade-appropriate novels, poetry, and other works; this includes Shakespearean works. They will read works of various genres and should be able to critically analyze the pieces they read. Also, they will frequently respond to texts in writing. They will also write their own works, including poetry, as well as research papers. The research process is important in high school English, as students learn to properly cite sources, evaluate the relevance and legitimacy of the sources they locate, and put together an organized and cohesive research paper based on their findings. Students will also use other forms of digital media. Lastly, speaking and presenting will be a huge part of high school English. Students will have the opportunity to take AP and college-level English courses as well.
