Department of Curriculum and Instruction
Welcome to the New Milford Public Schools Department of Curriculum and Instruction.
The mission of the New Milford Public Schools, a collaborative partnership of
students, educators, family, and community, is to prepare every
student to compete and excel in an ever-changing world, embrace challenges with vigor, respect, and appreciation of the worth of every human being, and contribute to society by providing effective instruction and dynamic curriculum, offering a wide range of valuable experiences, and inspiring students to pursue their dreams and aspirations.
To support our students' success after graduation, whether it be college or work beyond school, New Milford Public Schools are committed to providing students with rich opportunities from which students can apply skills and concepts in a real-world context. By doing so, we will be promoting our students' ability to:
Creativity express their ideas
Approach problems thoroughly and thoughtfully to find the answers and questions to deepen their thinking.
Creating a positive and safe environment is the foundation for this work. This occurs by helping students build positive relationships with adults and peers and learn strategies to make decisions, prioritize tasks, understand themselves as learners and approach new situations through a growth mindset - making mistakes and learning from them.
