Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Country Club Hills District Curriculum
Effective communication is important, and students are required to observe attentively, speak effectively, write clearly and expressively, and demonstrate good listening skills to this end. In mathematics and science classes, the focus is on key, foundational concepts. Students use critical and analytical thinking to solve real-world problems, using strategies they’ve evaluated and refined for this purpose. The goal is to produce competitive, self-guided learners and producers who are equipped for the future.
Students are asked to understand and apply a core body of knowledge and skills across the curriculum and take responsibility for their own learning. In humanities classes, students are taught to read complex, nonfiction texts for comprehension. They write analytical essays, using a variety of techniques to gather information to support their theses. Students are taught to collect, organize, analyze, and retain this information for effective arguments.

Chalk Talk: Early Decision vs. Early Decision II
Early Decision is a type of college application. It’s due early, usually November 1st, though sometimes as early as October 15th. This means students must have completed SAT or ACT testing early enough to have scores ready to send by that date, in addition to completing the application in its entirety. It’s also binding, which means that the applicant signs a contract agreeing to attend this college if accepted. So students should only ever apply Early Decision if they are absolutely sure this is the right college. Early Decision II is a later version of Early Decision. The deadline might be as late as January 15th. It’s still binding, but it gives students a chance to apply Early Decision to their second to top choice, if the first choice doesn’t work out. Benefits of both application types include that since it’s early, there are fewer other applicants to compete against. Also, Early Decision and Early Decision II demonstrate a real commitment to the college, which is appealing to them.
