Niles District and Curriculum
The Niles Community Schools follow academic standards set by the Michigan Department of Education. The district is focusing on elementary literacy development and ensuring that students are strong readers of non-fiction as well as fiction. In the middle schools, students have more opportunities to pursue STEM learning which integrates engineering concepts into the math and science students learn. The high school curriculum provides a wider range of options including Dual/Concurrent Enrollment programs with local colleges and Advanced Placement for those who wish to get a head start on college.
We currently cover the following Niles-area school district: Niles Community Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Niles District Curriculum
The science curriculum at Niles Community Schools includes the study of Earth Science. Within this course, students learn how to research and process information that they obtain in class and with outside reading. They also learn to see the connections between humans and Earth, including the composition of the earth, oceanography, meteorology, space, the living earth and its natural resources. This, as well as other science classes, allows the student to see the world in a different way.
Mathematics begin with learning about simple numeration and how to combine numbers to find solutions to problems. Beginning with learning how to label each item in a set with a number, the students start their trek with mathematics. Each grade level increases the difficulty of the math that the student faces, while building on what they already know. When they are in high school they can take classes such as calculus which prepare them for college level math. In this class, students learn about trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions.

Chalk Talk: Volunteering in the Classroom
By volunteering in the classroom, parents demonstrate to children that education is important. There are a variety of ways to volunteer. First, many teachers have wish lists for their classrooms. Check the list and purchase one or more of the items for the teacher. Another way to volunteer is to help the teacher with their web page. This is the way that many educators communicate with the families, however, finding the time to work on the site can be difficult for many teachers. If this is something that interests a parent, they should present their idea to the teacher. Another way to give is to share with the class a skill. Perhaps a parent likes working with plants, so they may help with a classroom garden or perhaps they can use a parent's skill will posting classwork or assembling a bulletin board. Any
