Minto District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The local schools use a standards-based curriculum that builds student knowledge from an elementary foundation toward the ability to perform more complex work within each subject. The framework is built around grade-level expectations, which represent the skills and knowledge students must develop in order to be prepared for their next year. Within the subjects, the curriculum goes beyond the basic skills and content of subjects and also specifies the types of critical thinking which will emerge through the coursework of a subject.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Minto District Curriculum
In English, the literacy skills which students gain are meant to bring about analytic, interpretative and evaluative thinking. In History, conceptual understandings about change and continuity, social movements, governance and institutions are raised through the study of historical periods. Both subjects have technology integrated into learning through its use for researching and creating student work.
In Science, the scientific content is interlaced with opportunities to investigate phenomenon and principles thereby developing the means for process-oriented, scientific thinking. In Math, students learn how to solve numerical, algebraic and geometrical problems and gain the basis with which they can reason abstractly and logically. Each of these areas of critical thought help students master advanced learning and real-world pursuits in their future.

Even for students who do not consider themselves artistic, the opportunities to play around with paint, clay and other media can provide an appreciable diversion from a rigorous academic routine. For many students, art classes allow talents to emerge and be nurtured, ensuring us the next generation of artists.
