Port Huron District and Curriculum
Local students attend school in the Port Huron Area School District. The district serves over 9,000 students each year in its ten elementary schools, three middle schools, and two high schools. Schools in this district base their curriculum on the national Common Core standards. Port Huron Area School District believes in using data to make decisions and is constantly updating their instruction based on this data. Starting in elementary school, students receive instruction in the four core subjects of Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.
We currently cover the following Port Huron-area school district: Port Huron Area School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Port Huron District Curriculum
In Language Arts, teachers use the Harcourt series to teach students how to read, analyze what they have read, and write short essays. Students learn about both fiction and non-fiction as they explore the different literary genres. Math Expressions is the curriculum used in elementary schools to teach students such standards as number theory, operations, measurement, and geometry. These foundational skills are necessary for life skills such as using money.
High school students expand on the core subjects they took in elementary school by studying more in-depth fields of each subject. Students will continue to take classes in Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies; but will be able to differentiate their learning based on their own interests. High school also offers students the opportunity to earn college credit with both dual enrollment and Advanced Placement classes. The dual enrollment program is a partnership with nearby St. Clair County Community College in which students can take college courses.

Chalk Talk: Standards-Based Grading
In recent years, many school districts have moved away from traditional grading and adopted standards-based grading systems. Gone are the letter grades and recognitions that went with them like Honor Roll or Principal’s List. Report cards now have lists of standards students are being taught along with grades that depict where in the learning continuum a student is with each standard. These grades generally include milestones such as Proficient, Advanced Proficient, and Developing Proficient. Standards-based grading is supposed to take the stigmas away from lower grades, since parents generally just looked at the end grade and not how the student got the grade. Now, parents can see exactly which standards students are doing well in and which ones they may be struggling with. This data also gives teachers a way to differentiate material so that each student is receiving remediation in the standards they need help in.
