    In alignment with the strategic plan, the Curriculum and Instruction Department will continue to support the mission of the District by ensuring students have access to the following:

    • A wide variety of course offerings in core-content areas (English, Math, Social Studies and Science) and specialized subjects (Fine & Performing arts and Foreign Languages)
    • Updated textbooks and instructional materials to support teaching and learning
    • Curriculum which contains a strong emphasis on developing inquiry, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills across all disciplines
    • K-12  learning opportunities in the field of STEAM (Science Technology, Engineering, ARTS, and Mathematics)
    • Before and/or after-school enrichment activities 
    The mission of the Wappingers Central School District is to empower all of our students with the competencies and confidence to challenge themselves, to pursue their passions, and to realize their potential while growing as responsible members of their community.
