Washington Township District and Curriculum
Students living in Washington Township, Michigan attend school in one of three districts that include Rochester Community Schools, Romeo Community Schools, and Utica Community Schools.

The curriculum in these school systems is aligned to both the national Common Core curriculum and the Michigan Grade Level Expectations.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Washington Township District Curriculum
Students begin their academic careers at a young age by attending early childhood programs starting around age three. These programs are designed to give students an opportunity to experience school life while exposing them to learning through play. As students enter elementary school their curriculum focuses on the four main subjects of Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. The goal of this curriculum is to give students the foundational skills necessary to be successful.
While the elementary school curriculum is meant to give students the foundational skills necessary for success, the curriculum in middle school and high school allows students to explore their interests. All students will continue to take courses from the four main subject areas. However, they can begin to choose courses for themselves which gives them ownership of their education. Students can choose to take more rigorous courses in these same subjects that could even lead to earning college credit.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Reading for Fun
Students will read a variety of literature as they move from Kindergarten through their senior year of high school. The majority of this material will be chosen by their teachers or even the school board. While students may enjoy some of these choices, it is extremely important for students to read on their own for enjoyment. Students that read outside of school will become more fluent readers and writers which will lead to better performance in other subjects. It has also been shown that children who are fluent readers score much higher on standardized tests and other assessments. Another benefit for students who read for fun is being well-read, which will give them the ability to connect to most situations they encounter. People that have some experience with a particular scenario, even through fictional reading, have a much easier time adapting to that same event in their own life. While reading is a life-long skill, reading for fun is a life-enriching experience.
