Curriculum Highlights
With a focus on school-wide reading and writing literacy, the staff at MMS uses data-driven instruction to progress student achievement in meeting the Delaware State Standards for college and career readiness. This instruction is differentiated for all students based on academic needs. We support struggling students through our Response to Intervention (RtI) model, as well as our AVID program, a “college readiness system designed to increase school-wide learning and performance through a curriculum focused on rigorous standards, WICOR (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, Reading strategies), Cornell note-taking, and Socratic Seminars.” For all of our students, we are pleased to offer College Board’s Springboard curricula in reading and math. Additionally, we provide challenging opportunities for those students who meet or exceed state standards through RtI enrichment activities and exemplary extra-curricular programs.
