Carterville District and Curriculum

Carterville Community Unit School District believes in preparing its students for future success by providing a rigorous, competitive curriculum, a supportive environment, and co-curricular opportunities for students to succeed in. The curriculum follows the Illinois Learning Standards, which are internationally referenced standards intended to provide an equal, quality education to all students regardless of where they live or where they go to school. Students are given clear expectations for what they should learn by the end of each year, and teachers are given the flexibility to help them, individually.

We currently cover the following Carterville-area school district: Carterville Community Unit School District #5.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Carterville District Curriculum

The curriculum teaches skills students will need to be competitive in our ever-growing, global community, such as strong math skills, science literacy, critical thinking skills, critical reading, and analytical writing skills. Students learn how to think logically, how to form intelligent opinions based on facts and observations, how to research and back up those opinions with evidence, and how to communicate those opinions effectively. The school believes that all students should be given opportunities for success and provide a variety of options that will connect all students with their post-secondary goals.

One goal of the curriculum is for students to develop independence in learning and be able to locate information and resources that will help them learn new information. Personal leadership is also imbued into the curriculum and students are able to work within the community to develop their leadership skills. Respect for diversity is also taught. Students are taught to make healthy and beneficial choices, not only for themselves but regarding their interactions with others, which should be respectful.

Chalk Talk: Recommendations

One of the steps to applying to college is gathering letters of recommendations. Most letters should be written by teachers who are familiar with the applicants’ academic work. If a student has significant work or volunteering experience, a letter from a supervisor may also be helpful. Most colleges require from one to three recommendations per applicant. These are meant to come from teachers in junior or senior year core curriculum classes. Additional recommendations are usually accepted, but are honestly rarely useful unless they give real insight into the student that hasn’t been shown elsewhere. Colleges want recommendations from classroom teachers because they want to see how the student works and behaves in class. The student’s work ethic, study habits, attitude, intellectual curiosity, and willingness to seek out support when needed all help gives the college insight into whether the student is truly ready for college.
