Northview District and Curriculum
The Northview Public Schools follow the academic standards established by the Michigan Department of Education. The Michigan Merit Curriculum describes the expectations for teaching and learning and ensures that all students in the state are receiving the same high-quality learning experience. Across the state, schools have also adopted a Early Literacy Initiative which is supporting the goal of having all students be proficient readers by the 3rd grade. The elementary program places great emphasis on literacy of both fiction and non-fiction so that students are well versed in understanding texts that they encounter.
We currently cover the following Northview-area school district: Northview Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Northview District Curriculum
The English curriculum at Northview Public Schools includes a variety of approaches to learning. Included in the curriculum the students find an article each week which can then be discussed, and analyzed before they reflect on it. They also may choose books outside of school to read. They then write about the book in class. Students are also given the challenge of reading 30 books each year in high school. By supplying different ways of learning English, the experience is kept meaningful.
The district also employs personalized learning options with the goal of engaging students with pathway options that meet their post-secondary needs. The prestigious International Baccalaureate Programme is an option for students at all grade levels, including elementary school. The approach used by the IB program is more globally focused and engages students in active, service-oriented learning. The Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment programs both allow students to begin working on college level courses while still in high school, and earning college credit for their work.

Chalk Talk: Help for Students Afraid of Not Succeeding in College
When students prepare to go to college for the first time, there are several things which may make them afraid. First, many fear not being smart enough for college, even if they have never had problems in high school. Parents can help them by showing them how to set-up a calendar for the semester from their syllabi, then emphasize the importance of following it. Before the student goes to college, help them to learn how to scan readings for information. Otherwise the lengthy assignments given in classes will overwhelm them. Students need to realize the importance of enjoying early classes, otherwise the temptation of sleeping will be too tempting. Finally, parents can help the students realize they need to be prepared for their exams to keep from becoming stressed at that time.
