At Wyoming Public Schools, we believe in individualized instruction that teaches the way kids learn. Among the tools we use to accomplish that goal is technology, which is integrated in subject areas throughout the curriculum. Computers are used in every classroom to support instruction and learning, to teach vocational skills, and to link students to the world. Our overall goal for technology is to improve student learning, improve communication between home and school, and help the district continue to provide outstanding programs to students and the community.
The core curriculum focuses on the results of learning. It is designed to meet student needs by providing a strong foundation in basic skills for life and work success. The curriculum is aligned with state core curriculum guidelines, the Kent County Collaborative Core Curriculum (KC4) for math, science, social studies, language arts, and our own school improvement goals. Instructional resources are carefully chosen to support curriculum standards.
Technology, tutorials, supplemental courses, co-curricular, consortia, summer, and community service programs also support the core curriculum.
Students are expected to demonstrate proficiency in language arts (reading writing, speaking, listening, and literature), mathematics, social studies, science, health, physical education, fine arts, technology, character education, business, and foreign language education.
