Creve Coeur District and Curriculum
Creve Coeur District and East Peoria Community High School both follow the Illinois Learning Standards, a rigorous curriculum that is internationally benchmarked and includes clearly communicated expectations for students. Critical thinking, critical reading, analytical writing, and strong communication skills are stressed, along with science literacy and strong math skills. The school strives to produce well-educated students who are also well-rounded, with lots of opportunities for extracurricular involvement. In addition to the physical campuses, the schools strive to maintain an atmosphere in which students feel safe and supported.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Creve Coeur District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards form the basis of teaching and learning throughout each student’s education. The English language arts curriculum has been redesigned so that it provides a greater focus on non-fiction informational texts in addition to fictional literary works. The goal is to make sure students have the appropriate reading skills to understand and analyze texts in all their classes and also to be able to recognize bias and authorial intent. This also helps students to be able to find and evaluate texts while doing their own research.
The district believes that all students should be given equal opportunities to learn, and teachers are given the freedom to tailor their lesson plans to fit the individual needs of their students, whether they need help to catch up to grade level, or whether they need to be challenged more. The schools also incorporate Advanced Placement courses into their high school curriculum so that students can begin on college-level courses in areas where they excel, and also earn college credit if they are able to pass the end of year Advanced Placement exams.

Chalk Talk: College Applications
There are several elements to a college application, each with their own purpose. The application, itself, is mostly demographic information, though it does include one or more essays, usually. This essay is a very useful thing for the college application committee because it affords them an opportunity to really get to know the applicant’s personality in a way that isn’t possible anywhere else in the application. The transcript is probably the most important part, since it contains the list of classes the student has taken and the grades s/he has received. This gives the committee some insight into how the student has done in classes, how difficult the classes have been, and how the student has dealt with challenges.
