Woodrow Wilson Middle School offers many different levels of Language Arts and Reading classes. Students are placed in classes based on a variety of data points and information: previous standardized test scores, previous report cards, work habits, maturity of child, teacher recommendation etc. While we try to get the level "right" with our first placement, sometimes we do need to adjust class level placement, up or down, based on student current performance. Our goal is to provide an environment that will challenge and push each child, but not consistently frustrate. And, the Class Size Reduction Amendment must always be followed.
All students in 6th grade are assigned a reading and language arts class. Only Intensive Developmental Reading is offered to 7th and 8th grade students who require the additional support based on their standardized scores and previous classroom performance.
When you review your child's schedule, you can easily determine which level of class they have been placed in based on the last 2 digits of the Hillsborough County Public Schools (HCPS) course number. If you click on any of the course levels below, you will be redirected to www.cpalms.org, which will give you a description of the course and the standards required to be taught. In addition, the site lists the teachers certification necessary to teach the course and an abundance of student and parent resources for mastering the content.
