Curriculum & Instruction Philosophy

  • The Medina City School District is committed to providing the best educational experience we can for our students.  It is our philosophy that the biggest effects on student learning occur when teachers use the most highly effective, research-based strategies available.  To that end, our District Leadership Team has identified 8 Essential Instructional Practices that are being used across the District, in K-12 classrooms.
