Curriculum: A Closer Look

In the Mequon-Thiensville School District, curriculum in the general sense is the interactive system of teaching & learning derived from content based on the district-approved standards. More specifically, it is the knowledge and skills students are expected to learn; the units and lessons taught; the assignments and projects used; the books, materials, videos, presentations, and reading used in a course; and the tests, assessments, and other methods used to evaluate student learning

Curriculum is developed aligned to the district's mission, vision, and strategic plan. MTSD is on a 7-Year Academic Review Cycle for review of all content areas.
