Students who attend Willmar Public Schools are enrolled in one of three levels of programming:
- Elementary schools, which educate kindergarten through fifth grade students.
- Middle schools, which educate sixth through eighth grade students.
- High schools, which educate ninth through 12th grade students.
Curriculum is reviewed according to a seven-year curriculum review cycle.
Classroom teachers serve on subject area committees that review current research and best practices in that field. They then provide leadership for revising the curriculum, selecting appropriate materials, initiating staff development, and implementing changes.
For more information about the Willmar Public Schools curriculum review process, contact Carrie Thomas, Director of Teaching and Learning, at 320-231-8477, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents/guardians, students or staff who are curious about the state's academic standards for a particular subject area are encouraged to visit the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) website where standards are broken down by subject area.
