Buffalo Grove District and Curriculum

The districts in Buffalo Grove offer students a rigorous curriculum that is enhanced by different electives and program offerings within each district. Math and Language Arts is a strong focus across the board, and students are expected to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills in these areas so they are thoroughly prepared for post-secondary life. Science, technology, and engineering are also taught in a more integrated fashion and students have the chance to work on emerging subjects like robotics and coding.

We currently cover the following Buffalo Grove-area school district: Aptakisic-Tripp CCSD 102, Kildeer Countryside CCSD, Township High School District 214, and Wheeling CCSD 21.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Buffalo Grove District Curriculum

In English language arts, the Common Core standards emphasize reading nonfiction, writing analytic essays, and working with complex texts. These standards are intended to develop students’ ability to gather information and use evidence to back their claims while also expanding their vocabularies. Students may read fiction and write creatively, but the curriculum emphasizes nonfiction and analytil writing in teaching students how to be critical readers and persuasive writers.

The Next Generation Science Standards are intended to prepare students for college and career. They, also, begin with key concepts and, once the foundations of scientific inquiry have been laid, proceed to more complex explorations of the natural world. Students are introduced to principles of earth science, biology, chemistry and physics and also an emphasis is placed on technology and its role in society. The aim is for students to be able to take a scientific view of the natural world.

Chalk Talk: Factors To Consider In the College Search

There are around 3,500 4-year colleges in the US. This can be a daunting number for high school students, but there are many ways to narrow the list down to a handful of prospective colleges. First, consider your educational needs. Will you be comfortable in a large college? A small one? Both have advantages and disadvantages. Consider the student to faculty ratio, class size, and the like. Then, location comes into play. What part of the country are you interested in? Do you want a rural college, a suburban college, or an urban college? Again, all can have advantages or disadvantages depending on your needs. Support services are an important thing to consider. Finally, consider the academic programs. If you can’t decide on a major, consider a department; are you more of a math person? A science person? Do you prefer English class? History? These considerations can help you narrow down the pool even more.
