Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Flossmoor District Curriculum
The English Language Arts standards provide objectives in reading literature, informational and foundational texts, writing, speaking and listening, and language. Each of these topics is taught through the early grades with more analytic assignments as they go along. In high school, there are College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards that call upon students to have developed the critical thinking skills associated with close reading, reflective writing, and speaking and listening in small and large groups.
The Math curriculum starts with a range of foundational skills during the elementary years and moves towards more in-depth learning in high school. Early standards cover number and quantity, algebra, geometry, functions, modeling, and statistics and probability. The high school courses in these require students to learn in-depth problem-solving procedures in each area. One of the goals of the curriculum is that students be able to look at any math problem and be able to determine the most effective and efficient way of solving it.

Chalk Talk: Humanizing Your Application
A college application is a stack of paper. One of the biggest challenges an applicant faces is making themselves stand out. One way of doing that is to focus on humanizing yourself, so that the committee sees you as a person and not a stack of paper. There are several small ways of doing this. The essays and the application itself can help if you maintain the goal of letting your personality really shine through. Campus visits and interviews also can do a lot, since they give you a chance to actually get to know the college representatives and for them to get to know you. Things like sending thank you notes and keeping in contact with representatives can also do a lot. Obviously, you don’t want to go overboard and stalk them, but being polite and thoughtful by sending a thank you note after an interview or tour can mean a lot.
