Dolton District and Curriculum
The schools aim to give all students the opportunity to learn in a safe and nurturing environment and creating a culture of excellence, respect, and pride for students, faculty, and staff. The faculty try to provide students the tools to learn, to think, to solve problems, and to make thoughtful decisions so that they are prepared for their post-secondary future in the community and the global society. Instructional teams review student learning data—academic, physical, emotional, and behavioral—to assess and make decisions about curriculum and instructional strategies, and the school culture supports teachers in practicing effective and responsive instruction to meet individual student needs.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dolton District Curriculum
The school follows the Illinois Common Core Learning standards. The mathematics curriculum focuses on covering topics in depth. At the elementary school level, the curriculum emphasizes basic concepts such as numbers and operations to make sure students master the foundations of mathematics before progressing onto more advanced concepts in middle and high school. The aim is for students to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to become lifelong learners.
The humanities curriculum focuses on a comprehensive understanding of key concepts, which includes reading and comprehending complex texts and writing analytic essays. The focus is more on nonfiction texts than novels or poetry, again, with an emphasis on mastering basic concepts such as grammar rules and comprehension, early on, and progressing to focus on encouraging the development of students’ abilities to gather information from reading and use evidence to back their claims while writing, in high school, as well as expanding their vocabularies.

Chalk Talk: SAT Subject Tests
The SAT Subject Test, or SATII, is exactly what it sounds like; a standardized test that focuses on one specific subject, such as math levels 1 or 2, US History, World History, Chemistry, Physics, various languages, etc. As such, they are much shorter than the regular SAT, but also delve much more in-depth in the particular subject. Not every college requires them, though most of the more selective do, and students planning to enter hard sciences or math probably need to take them. Even if they aren’t required, a good score will make a student more appealing to the college. Colleges that do require them tend to want two tests, though many will accept ACT scores instead. There are several different subject tests, and some are more meaningful than others to colleges. Of course, the tests most closely related to the student’s area of interest will be the most valuable.
