Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wilbraham District Curriculum
The district uses the Common Core State Standards. There are specific expectations for teachers with regards to professional development to ensure that the curriculum is implemented as smoothly as possible. The high school’s school-wide academic expectations are for students to gather information effectively, use critical thinking and problem solving skills, and communicate effectively and appropriately.
In Math, high school students study statistics and probability, learning how to interpret both categorical and quantitative data. Students learn about topics such as expressions and equations are also studied, including the process of modeling with linear equations. Students learn to work with functions as well, and acquire the skills to describe quantitative relationships. Students are expected to become able to understand the best way to solve any quantitative or spatial problem they are presented with.

Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.

Chalk Talk: The Evolution of the Display Board
The chalkboard is an iconic image of a classroom, but the majority of classrooms don't even have one anymore! However, all classrooms need a "board" of some sort, so what has replaced the chalkboard? Sometime in the early 2000s, whiteboards became popular and are still in the majority of classrooms today. They are mess-free—no more chalk dust—and it is easier for young children to write neatly with markers as opposed to chalk. What if teachers wanted to display pre-written questions or math problems? Overhead projectors have been around for a while and remain popular. Although some classrooms still use them in the traditional way, it is a tedious process to create overhead projector-friendly sheets, so classrooms have added a document camera, or Elmo, which easily allows teachers to display anything from student work to edible objects without any preparation. Also in the early 2000s, many classrooms started using LCD projectors to display PowerPoint presentations for lectures or anything else they wanted their students to see from their computer.
