Elementary Curriculum

In Milford, we strive to create a classroom culture that engages students in academic work that results in high levels of achievement and growth.

Ohio's academic content standards are statements that describe what all students in Ohio should know and be able to do by the end of each grade. They help families, students, and educators know what to expect students to be learning at each grade level. View the academic content standards on the Ohio Department of Education website.

Gifted Education

Students in grades 3 - 5 who meet the criteria for services in reading, math, and/or superior cognitive will receive direct instruction from a gifted intervention specialist.

Gifted Services 

The State of Ohio requires public schools to identify students as gifted, and Milford Schools complies with this requirement.   Although the State of Ohio does not require services for students who are gifted, Milford strives to provide challenging and differentiated instruction for these students.  

Gifted services offered:

  • Students identified as gifted are served by their classroom teachers through differentiated instruction.

  • Students in grades 3 - 5 who meet the criteria for services in reading, math and/or superior cognitive will receive direct instruction from a gifted intervention specialist.  Please see the click here for the slideshow on the gifted program.

  • At the Jr. High accelerated math and science options, as well as honors reading and electives, are available.
