Curriculum & Instruction
School District of Mishicot is a recognized state leader in the field of education. All three schools at all three levels and the district are currently recognized by the Wisconsin of Department of Instruction as schools that “Exceed Academic Expectations”. Additionally, 87% percent of our high school graduates continue their education by enrolling in post-secondary programs. This success is a product of a variety of factors including outstanding parent and community support, a motivated student body, a highly skilled teaching staff, rigorous and relevant instructional practices, aligned assessments that measures growth and performance, community partnerships, and a well-articulated curriculum.
We believe that our curriculum must be comprehensive and balanced in order to meet the needs of all students. The School District of Mishicot’s curriculum is research based, modeled from best practices, and aligned with the State of Wisconsin Academic Standards. Within each program of study, students are expected to master essential knowledge, skills, and competencies. This occurs by having students participate in a broad range of opportunities both within and outside of the classroom setting. It is imperative that students apply the knowledge, skills, and competencies to real world issues. In addition to mastering core knowledge, skills, and competencies, the District also believes it is vitally important for students to develop competencies in “21st century skills” such as those highlighted in our strategic plan.
These skills include:
• Problem solving
• Critical thinking
• Working cooperatively with diverse groups
• Resolving conflicts
• Taking responsibility for one’s own learning
• Producing quality work
