Wilmington District and Curriculum
Wilmington Public Schools contain six schools and 3,800 students. There are two elementary schools with grades 1-3, two intermediate schools with grades four and five, a middle school, and a high school. The district also houses two early childhood centers attended by pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students. Wilmington prides itself as being a district that offers a high quality student-centered, inquiry-based education. The district has received ample support from the community of Wilmington, which has also made it possible for a new high school to be constructed.
We currently cover the following Wilmington-area school district: Wilmington Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wilmington District Curriculum
Wilmington Public Schools have implemented the Common Core State Standards—a combination of the state and national standards—to prepare students for the future global society that follows their K-12 education. These standards provide a clear picture of what students are expected to learn and apply to the real world. Wilmington schools also uses the PARCC computer-based assessment, which gives a better measurement of students’ readiness for the next grade level.
The new standards have resulted in changes to how English is instructed at Wilmington High School. The curriculum is more rigorous, requiring students to read critically from various types and genres of text, write for different audiences and purposes, and speak informally and formally. In math, students must use problem solving and reasoning to solve both real world and theoretical problems.

Chalk Talk: They Teach It Like This Now: Pluto
Teachers should always double-check before teaching something because it may have changed from the time they were in school—this goes for either the way it was taught or the content itself. When I was in school, I remember being taught the pneumonic “My Very Excellent (or Educated) Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas” to remember the order of the planets from their proximity to the sun. However, when Pluto was no longer considered a planet and was relegated to a “dwarf planet,” the “pizza” part of the pneumonic became irrelevant. Luckily, it is easy to alter this pneumonic, so with Neptune now being the last planet, we can teach “My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nachos,” for example. Now students learn that there are eight planets, not the nine that we learned when we were in school.
