Welcome to the 2016-17 school year! We are looking forward to another exciting year. There will be additional revisions and changes taking place. However, we are keeping our focus on the Mission and Vision Statements of the district:
Mission: The mission of the Millville Area School District is to provide a quality education for every student through the combined efforts of a dedicated staff, involved parents, and a supportive community.
Vision: Academic excellence in an ever-changing world.
The education of today’s young people relies on collaboration and communication between the students, parents, teachers, and administrators. This educational journey also includes all parties being responsible and accountable for their words and actions as the district strives to provide a safe, positive, and supportive learning environment where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
Children learn in different ways, through different modalities, and at different rates. Instruction, assignments, and assessments are differentiated to meet the needs of all students. We have implemented MAPS (Millville's Academic Plan for Students) at the high school level. These MAPS are guidelines of suggested courses a student should take based on their future goals and plans. In addition, STEM classes, the ACE program at Bloomsburg University, college courses through Bloomsburg University and Pennsylvania College of Technology will be available to enhance the education opportunities for our students.
We will continue to work together to provide the students with a quality education. New curriculum for ELA, Music, and World Languages will be implemented this year. We will also be rewriting the Math, Business, Technology Education, and Computer curriculums. Our goal is student growth on the state tests we are required to administer as well as our local assessments. We will accomplish this goal by working together to support the educational foundation the district is providing.
Thank you for your contiuned support on this educational experience.
