Ewa Beach District and Curriculum
To prepare students for paths beyond high school, from careers to post-secondary education, the Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE) and Ewa Beach-area schools are committed to upholding six General Learner Outcomes (GLOs). These GLOs serve as guidelines for Ewa Beach-area schools; by keeping these outcomes at the forefront of educational policy, parents and educators have concrete results to aim toward. The GLOs focus on ethical technology use, communication, production, self-directed learning, critical thinking, and effective citizenry.
We currently cover the following Ewa Beach-area school district: Hawaii Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ewa Beach District Curriculum
The DOE, to further ensure that students are ready for post-high school life, is switching from the No Child Left Behind curriculum to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Parents of Ewa Beach-area students can expect to see a full implementation of this change in the 2013-2014 school year. The CCSS will bring updates to English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics instruction; in each, educators will focus more on critical and analytical thinking. With less focus on memorization, the DOE also hopes to inspire students to study these subjects in a post-secondary educational setting.
Graduation requirements will also undergo a slight change for Ewa Beach-area high school students. Although core subjects will remain the same, students will be required to obtain slightly different course credit under each. Starting in 2016, graduating students must obtain one-half credit hour in Expository Writing in addition to passing ELA I and II. They must also obtain one credit hour each in Geometry and Algebra.

Chalk Talk: Tips for Writing an Admissions Personal Statement
Most universities require students to include a personal statement with their admission materials. They do this, in part, so they can understand the student as a whole person, not just a set of test scores and grades. Students can make their personal statements stand out by following a few simple tips. Students might consider the activities or challenges that make them unique, and write about these. Students should also write formally, but allow their own writing styles to shine through. By doing so, admissions officers will get a feel for the writer’s personality. Once students have finished writing their statements, they should take the time to revise more than once, since writing often becomes clearer with each revision. Proper grammar and spelling are also important, so students might ask a teacher or tutor to check their statements for errors. With a little time and effort, every student should be able to create an essay that shines.
