Mastery Learning at Northwood
Karen Wells, Principal

Northwood Elementary 

 

Northwood Elementary opened its doors in 2007.  We currently serve 550 students K-4 students. We strive daily to connect with our community and to provide an education that is responsive to the times and focused on what’s best for our students. We want our students to develop a strong understanding about who they are as learners and as citizens in our community.  At Northwood, just like other Marysville Schools, we have worked to step away from the passive industrial educational model, and have moved towards a more active and engaged learning model. We have done this through personalized, mastery learning. Our hope is that when people look at our building they say, “Wow, something wonderful is going on in there and I want to be apart of it.”

Relationships Matter
Ashley Thompson
Director of Personalized Learning  

 

Learning must start not with rules, but with healthy relationships. Relationships sit at the core of a personalized learning environment. This imperative social emotional component within the classroom enables students’ feelings of safety, belonging, and hope - all of which are fundamental to optimize each learning. Classrooms rooted in explicit and intentional commitments help students learn to engage in positive interpersonal relationships with both their peers and their teacher. Equally as critical, an emphasis on social emotional learning helps students know and value themselves.

What's The Truth About Mastery Learning
Diane Mankins
Marysville Superintendent
 
After years in education, one indisputable fact is that ALL children can learn. Unfortunately, barriers such as time and space create obstacles for learners to progress through the content in the classroom. A mastery based system simply seeks to remove these barriers and allow students to grapple with concepts or accelerate to deep levels of thinking based on personal readiness and understanding.

The Call For Personalized Learning
Diane Mankins, 
Marysville Superintendent 
 
Our personalized learning journey started a few years ago during our strategic planning process.  As we engaged in a deep dive of our student achievement and growth data, it was very clear that despite our excellent rating we were not meeting the academic needs of every single student the district. Equally important to academic performance is a student’s experience and sense of hope for the future. So, we asked students directly their perception of our  schools, classrooms, and experience which resulted in formative feedback for systemic change in order to foster stronger connections to school, build resiliency, and cultivate hope for every single student we serve. These results are the foundation for our work across the district in personalized learning.

Erin Morrison (Teacher) and Ava Taylor (Third Grade Student)

Navin Elementary School

It is a theme used across the district, but growth mindset is proving to be more than just words on a wall.
