Barrington District and Curriculum
The Barrington 220 School District uses the Illinois Learning Standards (ILS) as the framework for teaching and learning in all core academic subjects as well as areas such as Career Development and Social/Emotional Learning. The primary goals of the curriculum is to ensure that all students are prepared for their college and career pursuits and have the educational opportunities available which support their interests. There are also Advanced Placement courses at the high school which use a well-developed college level curriculum to introduce students to the expectations they will face in post-secondary education.
We currently cover the following Barrington-area school district: Barrington 220 School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Barrington District Curriculum
The English language arts curriculum has been designed to assist students in all areas of learning. The reading strand equally focuses on literary and informational texts and imparts the skills students need to analyze these different styles. The writing strand introduces students to a variety of forms of writing and places emphasis on language and grammar usage as well as the development of voice and tone. Students also learn how to locate and assess the credibility of information using library resources.
The Social Sciences curriculum introduces students to concepts in Political Systems, Economics, History, Geography, and Social Systems. Students learn about civic life and identify common taxes, such as sales tax and income tax, and explain how that revenue benefits society by funding roads, schools, and other infrastructure. They learn about how people and systems interact and come to understand the historical background for current issues in the world. They also have many opportunities to conduct independent research in historical and social topics that interest them which helps the development of their academic research skills.

Chalk Talk: Differences Between Colleges and Universities
The primary difference between a university and a college is how it is organized. A university is organized by departments called schools or colleges. These are usually similar departments, such as humanities, and are often grouped into their own separate buildings. These departments operate autonomously under the umbrella of the larger university. State-funded post-secondary institutions are usually organized into universities. Partly, this is because they tend to be larger than private colleges, though this isn’t always the case. If they are public, universities might be part of a system of campuses, which all operate autonomously. In general, the flagship campus will be the largest and most known of these, though these branch campuses can develop their own reputations as independent centers of learning.
