Benton District and Curriculum

Benton School District and Benton Consolidated High School both use the Illinois Learning Standards as the general curriculum framework in all academic subjects. The curriculum also sets goals for social emotional learning and community service. The high school district’s core values include the ideas of P.R.I.D.E., or Problem solving, Readiness for college and career, Individual responsibility, Development of the whole student, and Everyone included and valued. These values are taught to students through demonstration of healthy and positive choices and by holding students to high expectations of behavior.

We currently cover the following Benton-area school districts: Benton School District No. 47 and Benton Consolidated High School.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Benton District Curriculum

The curriculum follows the Illinois Learning Standards, which are rigorous and competitive standards meant to instill in students the skills, learning, and problem-solving techniques they need to succeed in our increasingly global economy. Critical thinking skills are stressed as well as analytical writing skills. Science literacy, working through the process of discovery, and familiarity with technology are also stressed so that students are prepared to face the challenges of the work force.

Benton Consolidated High School also offers many extracurricular activities for students, from men’s and women’s varsity sports to visual and performing arts to vocal music and band, as well as academically themed clubs. These activities are intended to help create and encourage diverse interests in students. Community service is also offered. Students who become involved and engaged in the community are more likely to be engaged and active in the community after graduation, leading to better citizens.

Chalk Talk: Early Decision II

There are many types of decision that a student can apply for when applying for college. Early Decision (ED) applications are very popular with applicants because of all the benefits they give. Early Decision applicants have significantly higher acceptance rates, for example, and they tend to receive decisions within a few weeks of applying. Because Early Decision is binding, students can only apply to one school at a time this way, but if they’re not accepted, it can seem like a real waste. That’s where Early Decision II comes in. Early Decision II mirrors Early Decision but with a later application due date. It’s a second round of Early Decision applications, allowing students who’ve been released from Early Decision elsewhere to apply to a different college, maybe their second choice, with all the benefits of Early Decision.
