We are proud of our students' achievement, the instruction provided by our teachers, and the many educational programs offered to our community. We believe that our exemplary educational system is a result of the collaborative efforts of parents, students, teachers, school board and community. Together we are improving the quality of education in the Pinconning Area. 





This department places emphasis on the following areas: 

Curriculum:
What do we want our students to know?

Instruction:
How do we teach our students?

Assessment:
How do we know our students are learning?

 

The Pinconning Area Schools Curriculum is based upon standards that promote "rigor" and "relevance." These standards set high expectations and are based upon the belief that all students will succeed. Some students will need additional time and support, but all students will learn and experience success.  We have designed many interventions to support student learning.  Students will learn content that will be relevant to their future plans, whether it be post-secondary education or the work force. 

We also believe that we need to provide advanced learning opportunities for our students.  At Pinconning High School we currently offer the following Advanced Placement courses:  Biology, English Literature, Calculus AB, and U.S. History.
