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.

Standards Based Grading

A standards-based grading approach focuses on what a student knows and is able to do to show mastery of a learning goal.  It measures how well a student understands the material they are learning and how they are progressing towards their learning goals.  These learning goals are based on a specific set of standards that students need to meet for each grade level and are the standards noted on the report card.

As teachers work with students, they are continually gathering evidence to determine what each student has learned and how that student is progressing towards the end-of-year expectations.  The standards-based grading approach allows teachers to design lessons that give students multiple opportunities, if needed to demonstrate mastery of a standard.
