Ellisville District and Curriculum
The schools in the Rockwood School District have adopted the Missouri Learning Standards for humanities, sciences, and mathematics classes. In humanities classes, students read a variety of complex texts, from novels to nonfiction. They read for understanding and content as well as technique. Students answer guiding questions, form opinions, and gather evidence to support their opinions. They write well-reasoned analytical essays using facts and quotes to support their arguments – and these skills are integrated throughout the curriculum.
We currently cover the following Ellisville-area school district: Rockwood School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ellisville District Curriculum
Students develop critical thinking and critical reading skills as well as analytical writing skills which will serve them well in other classes, in college, and in life. In science classes, students learn to be science literate. They learn to employ systematic processes to solve problems and to test their theories objectively. They apply these problem solving skills to real-world applications. Beginning with a study of the physical world, students progress to engineering problems, learning skills that will help them in college and beyond.
Math classes focus on teaching students how the math works, rather than just having them memorize equations. Students are provided with a solid foundation so that they can advance confidently to move complex mathematical problems. The goal in all classes is to give students the skills, habits, and strategies for finding and understanding information that they need for future success.

Chalk Talk: Early Decision vs. Regular Decision
There are many benefits to Early Decision (ED) applications but some drawbacks. Students are often treated favorably because they’ve committed to this college, but they can miss out on possible better offers from other colleges. Regular Decision isn’t binding and doesn’t have these drawbacks, but students might have to wait a lot longer to hear a response, and they aren’t favored the way Early Decision applicants are. Money is a first-come, first-served game, and Early Decision applicants have first-crack at financial aid, but Early Decision is also highly competitive, and a student can be edged out by other students. For a safety, Regular Decision is a no-frills, easy approach. For a reach school, applying Early Decision can give a student just enough of a boast to send him/her over the edge into acceptance.
