Portage District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The district follows a core curriculum that emphasizes Math, Science, Language Arts, History and Languages.

One of the most exemplary options offered by Portage High School is the option to enroll dually in high school and college classes. Students here are able to earn up to 30 college credits before graduating from high school. This equates to a year’ worth of college tuition – free to the Portage High School student.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Portage District Curriculum
The evaluating Portage School District is involved in constant self-reflection of its programming to determine areas for improvement. As a result, students attending Portage schools in the 7th and 8th grades will be required to complete one semester of a pre-engineering course; in response to the growing emphasis on the math and sciences to ensure students are able to compete globally.
Portage schools embrace ‘differentiated instruction’ that is based on educational research underscoring the fact that children differ in their learning profiles. Therefore classroom instruction is designed to support the theory that students are active learners, decision makers and problem solvers; and are more natural and effective than those in which students are served a "one-size-fits-all" curriculum and treated as passive recipients of information. The key to a differentiated classroom in the Portage schools is that all students are regularly offered CHOICES and students are matched with tasks compatible with their profiles.

Chalk Talk: Arts Opportunities
Today many schools are cutting out their ‘arts’ (and even sports) programs due to budget constraints. However, the arts provide children with a more well-rounded view of the world as well as increasing their self-confidence. So if your district is paring down its arts program the following suggestions may be helpful to ensure your child has exposure to the visual arts, drama, music and more. Most municipalities have a community education department that offers a wealth of classes on different topics for all age levels. This is a wonderful source for arts classes – often taught by local ‘celebrities’ with an expertise in the field. Check out community calendars for arts experiences that are free or low cost and open to the public. Also, visit local museums, libraries, exhibits, historical centers and similar organizations – and take an official tour so you can get the benefit of knowledge offered by experts.
