Wellington District and Curriculum
The Wellington Unified School District strives to provide a culture of respect and collaboration for its students, faculty, staff, and parents. Students are expected to take part in their own learning, with the support of the faculty and parents. All students are given opportunities for success and are expected to reach for them. Teachers want all students to succeed, and offer support and guidance, as well as instruction, to help this happen. Students are given clear expectations of what they’re supposed to learn by the end of each year. Teachers have the freedom to modify their lessons to fit the needs of individual students.
We currently cover the following Wellington-area school district: Wellington Unified School District 353.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wellington District Curriculum
Wellington Unified School District has a rigorous curriculum, the Kansas College and Career Ready Standards, which is well-researched and competitive. Interventions in reading and mathematics are available to those who need them. Critical thinking skills, such as reasoning and analysis, are taught across the curriculum. There are also many access points where different subjects connect and give teachers the chance to integrate the learning that students do. This helps them to see real-world applications of their learning.
Humanities classes focus on critical and active reading and expose students to a variety of different types of challenging texts, from hard copy to digital formats, novels, nonfiction, and poetry. Students learn to write analytically by forming opinions about their reading, gathering evidence to support these opinion, and writing well-reasoned essays and making oral presentations supported by facts and evidence. They also learn how to use library and media resources for their research and presentations.

Chalk Talk: Letters of Recommendation
Most colleges require from one to three letters of recommendations from teachers who’ve taught the student junior or senior year. The question many students struggle with is who to ask. If a student knows his or her major, it might be obvious who to ask, specifically, a teacher within the field of study. So, a student who wants to major in astronomy, for example, would ask a science teacher, obviously, and maybe also a math teacher, since astronomy is so math-heavy. A future engineering major would ask science and math teachers. Students who haven’t picked a major, still don’t need to worry. A good rule of thumb is to ask a humanities teacher, who can comment upon the student’s writing ability and critical thinking skills, and a math or science teacher, who can comment upon the student’s classroom performance and problem solving ability, among other things.
