Forest Park District and Curriculum
The local schools follow Common Core and Illinois State Standards to provide a comprehensive education in core academics, the arts, technology, and career-related fields. The district believes that commitment is necessary for learning, extra-curricular activities, and the development of community leadership. The understanding of these responsibilities belongs to the teachers, staff, administrators, students, and community leaders. Also, student learning is the chief priority of the school and should be the primary focus of all decisions affecting the school.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Forest Park District Curriculum
Students look at the environmental, political and social changes that are occurring as our global society continues to shrink. Human migration is studied as well. Students learn about the various reasons why groups of people move, including natural disasters, political strife and social persecution. Students also engage in discussions of the relationship between government and the people, identifying ways in which the people can influence the law-making process. Landmark Supreme Court decisions are also analyzed, with students developing an understanding of how the decision made by the Court impact the manner in which the government can function.
The art curriculum allows students ample opportunity to develop their creative skills and also introduces them to concepts like aesthetics and the role of art in society. Students look at how art is influenced by culture, and how those cultural influences determine how events and ideas are expressed. They also acquire the ability to classify artwork based on a number of factors, including subject matter, technique, and style.

Chalk Talk: Why Students Choose Early Decision Applications
Early Decision has become a very popular application type in recent years because of its high acceptance rates. Early Decision has an early due date of November 1st, which means that every part of the application including test scores must be submitted by that date. Students also sign a contract agreeing to attend that college if accepted. Because of this commitment, colleges tend to look more favorably upon Early Decision applications, and the acceptance rates for these students is often significantly higher. A borderline student might use Early Decision to get that leg up and make the cut. Colleges tend to respond to Early Decision applications by the end of the calendar year, so many students will have completed their applications and know where they’re attending by the holidays, which can be a load off.
