Exemplary Programs
At East Millsboro Elementary we put children first as we work to create a motivating and challenging environment where we are focused on college and career readiness. Programs for student achievement are designed to provide instruction for the varied needs and interests of students. East Millsboro provides small-group instructional opportunities in both reading and math in order to meet the individual needs of students. In addition, we offer a Spanish Immersion Program to our incoming Kindergarteners. Within this program, students who are selected through a lottery system, have the opportunity to spend half the day fully immersed in the Spanish language and the other half immersed in English through fifth grade. We have a mentoring program that pairs community members with students who would benefit from the extra support, and our Positive Behavior Support Plan provides consistent expectations across grade levels.

Curriculum Highlights
Tightly coordinated instruction, high expectations, and careful planning are pathways to achievement. Using the Delaware Standards, reading expectations are supported by the “Benchmark Advance” Curriculum and a variety of instructional strategies. These materials are designed to assist students to reach mastery of reading skills. Key facets of reading are addressed so students become life-long readers. They include teaching students to hear and identify the individual sounds needed for reading. Students learn the relationships between sounds and letters and how to blend sounds to make words. Fluency and vocabulary development are the bridge to reading comprehension. The “Bridges” Math Curriculum emphasizes reasoning and critical thinking which encourages students to become mathematical problem solvers and thinkers. Assessments, including DIBELS, Unit Assessments as well as DeSSA, the state-wide assessment, help us to monitor student progress in order to meet students’ needs.
