CFCI will foster academic and social inquiry based learning by enriching the state curriculum.” They are dedicated to facilitating communication and action through partnerships in the community, education about the environment, connecting globally, technology, and mental and physical wellbeing. CFCI believes that producing a whole, well-rounded student is more important than anything else. They recognize the importance of the role that school plays in the development of the physical, intellectual, emotional, and social facets of each and every student, which are all integral to the students success. This leads them to focus on student inquiry and the innate sense of wonder, design hands-on, integrated and exciting opportunities for learning, actively prepare students to be independent, lifelong learners, and they prepare students to be critical thinkers and creative problems solvers, due to the nature of everyday life.

All students are engaged in 21st century learning and we are utilizing data to assist us in meeting our objectives. Students’ progress is monitored closely through informal and formal assessments and our decision making is collaborative and data driven. Our school is student-centered and our students will leave middle school prepared to excel in high school and beyond through the use of critical-thinking skills.” Just as other schools in North Carolina, the curriculum at Roland-Grise started with the state standards of learning. This means that, for example, students in Algebra I should, by the end of the semester, have skills such as the ability to create equations and inequalities in one variable, which represent linear, exponential, and quadratic relationships, as well as using them to solve problems.
Isaac M. Bear High School is located at 630 Macmillan Avenue, Wilmington, NC 28403. Isaac M. Bear covers ninth grade through twelfth grade. Contact Isaac M. Bear at (910) 350-1387. The mission statement of Isaac M. Bear, taken from their website, states that, “As a partner with the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, Isaac Bear Early College High School provides an accelerated, college-ready education by cultivating an environment of mature scholarship and leadership.” They will also ensure that students are engaged in a common instructional framework, that ensures students will read, write, think, and talk every day in every class, as much as possible, students will formulate comprehensive skill sets including thinking critically, innovating, and being leaders. Much like other schools in the state, Isaac M. Bear derives their curriculum from the state standards of learning. This means that, for example, students in grade 11 physics will learn to analyze the motion of objects and describe them using mathematical formulas, they will learn about vectors, how to use them, add them, and multiply them, and students will learn to take knowledge learned previously and apply it in ways they haven’t seen before on tests and homework.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wilmington District Curriculum
The schools mix traditional and non-traditional learning so that students get a full range of learning opportunities. Electives are varied in the high school grades at different schools, so careful planning on the student’s part with help from an academic counselor part will equate into a smooth transition to college or career.
New Hanover County Schools also offer students the chance to learn in their state approved online high school program if eligible, North Carolina Virtual Public School (NCVPS). The courses offered are free to the students in the District and throughout the state. Eligible students will access the classes through a virtual environment and whatever grades are earned becomes part of the student’s academic record and will help them to meet graduation requirements. This kind of learning is not for all students in the district, students need to know how to work on their own and know how to take the initiative to keep up their learning.

Chalk Talk: Deciding When It Is Time To Find a Tutor for Your Child
The time is not when your child is in their last year of high school and been struggling academically for the last year. The time is when you can see your child is not enjoying school anymore and easily distracted. When you ask them at the end of their school day what happened in school and you get a grumble out of them that is not understandable. This is the time to jump-start them back to actively learning and to like it again. If your child is showing signs that something is wrong with their studies and you can’t seem to get them back on track you may need to seek outside academic assistance.
