Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Portland District Curriculum

The Language Arts curriculum at Portland Maine Schools begins at the pre-K level, with daily reading and literacy activities that promote early reading and writing. Students continue through the middle and high school years with skill building activities and projects such as writer's workshops, research and book reports, grammatical analysis and peer projects and reviews. Thematic Units are utilized whenever appropriate to integrate Science and History into literacy development.

Math and Science continues the rigorous and challenging curriculum, teaching students early math concepts and foundations in arithmetic, geometry and early algebra. This foundation enables students to flourish later in the middle and high school years where students are expected to master Algebra I and encouraged to continue on to college level math.

Chalk Talk: How to Transition from Elementary School to Middle School

Although only divided by one year, the difference between elementary school and middle school can be eye opening for parents. Parents can help with this transition by being informed, involved and talking to their student about what to expect. Visit the school often and get to know your child's teachers. Then you have a source of information about what is really going on at school. Don't let your child get so absorbed with the social aspect of middle school that they forget the academics. Although middle school is only a step from the primary years, it is essential for children to do well, as it sets them up for high school and eventually college.
