Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Freeport District Curriculum
The curriculum is derived from the Illinois Common Core Standards for English language and mathematics, which give clear expectations for what students should know at the end of each grade level while holding students to similarly high standards. English and humanities classes read nonfiction and complex texts more so than fiction and poetry. Students write analytical essays more often than creative writing. The hope is that students will develop their abilities to gather information and use evidence to support their claims while also expanding their vocabularies so that students become critical thinkers.
Mathematics classes emphasize key concepts so that students are well-grounded in fundamental ideas, which give them a solid understanding. Students are given opportunities to apply their math skills to real-world problems and challenges. In science classes, students focus on observations with the physical world and progress on to engineering concepts later.

Chalk Talk: Fast Apps
Filling out college applications can be overwhelming, and when students see an opportunity to go a quick, short application, they often jump at the idea, even if they weren’t necessarily planning on applying to that college. These “Fast Apps” can be time savers, but they can also have some drawbacks. What makes Fast Apps fast is that they don’t require a lot of supporting materials. They usually ask for a transcript and standardized test scores, and that might be all. Students are often excited at the prospect of not having to write an essay and of getting a quicker decision. If a student is a slam-dunk for a college, then a Fast App is a good idea, but if a student is borderline, these supporting materials can be essential. The essay, teacher recommendations, the resume, and other supporting documents might be what a student needs to propel him/her from the “maybe” zone into acceptance, and Fast Apps don’t usually require these.
