Geneva District and Curriculum
The district curriculum follows the Illinois Common Core standards. The mission of the school is to enable students to receive a quality education regardless of how they learn. This curriculum provides clear expectations and detailed learning objectives for what students should have learned in English Language Arts and Mathematics by the end of each grade level and requires that all students meet similarly high standards. The objectives are tested through annual statewide assessments.
We currently cover the following Geneva-area school district: Geneva School District 304.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Geneva District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, the curriculum emphasizes reading nonfiction, writing analytical essays, and working with complex texts in order to develop students’ ability to find and evaluate information and provide supports to back their claims in writing. Students read selected fiction and write creatively, but the curriculum emphasizes nonfiction and analytic responses to texts. The development of vocabulary is also an emphasis and students are taught how to understand words based on their context.
The focus is also on teaching students how to be critical readers and persuasive writers. The curriculum also emphasizes skills that students need to succeed in college and the professional world and is competitively benchmarked with international standards, so that students will be well-equipped to compete in today’s global economy, whether they pursue post-secondary education or immediately enter the workforce.

Chalk Talk: Recommendation Letters
Most colleges require one or more recommendations, and even those that don’t require them will accept them, so sending recommendations is almost always a good move. A well-written recommendation by a knowledgeable educator can help a student’s application tremendously. Recommenders offer insights into the student’s work ethic, personality, drive, and all sorts of other qualities that would be difficult for colleges to learn about otherwise. They shed light on who a student really is. If a student struggled in a class, a recommendation from that teacher indicating the student’s true efforts might mitigate what could otherwise be a “black mark” on a transcript. Some students will ask anyone and everyone for a recommendation, but keep in mind that only teachers, bosses, trainers, and those who have real, specific insights into the student should write recommendations; otherwise, the recommendation will lack depth and simply be more paper for the admissions committee to go through.
