Curriculum

Elementary Curriculum


The elementary curriculum handbooks provide parents with grade level information about the Midland Public School's (K-5) curriculum. The elementary curriculum was developed using the Michigan Academic Standards. An explanation of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) is part of the handbook, along with information to guide parents in the understanding of quarterly report cards. Please refer to the handbooks throughout the school year if you have questions regarding the PYP, curriculum, or grade level expectations. If you have questions that are not answered in the handbook, please contact your child’s classroom teacher.
