Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glendale Heights District Curriculum
It is hoped that students will be equipped to enter their futures as knowledgeable persons who understand and apply a core body of knowledge and skills across the curriculum, read for comprehension and synthesis, use a variety of techniques, resources, and technology to gather information, collect, organize, analyze, and retain information. Students are encouraged to become critical thinkers who evaluate and refine strategies to solve problems and transfer this acquired knowledge to life experiences.
The curriculum also stresses that students act as responsible individuals who demonstrate ethical behavior, accept responsibility for their actions, demonstrate positive choices for their own physical and emotional health, and in a larger sense, act as socially responsible citizens. Students should demonstrate respect for individuals, cultures, races, and genders and exercise the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and participate in community service.

Chalk Talk: Community Colleges Today
Some students are hesitant to attend a community college because they feel like it’s not a “real” college, since anyone with a high school diploma can attend. But community colleges offer many opportunities for students that are worth considering. One of the primary considerations is that community colleges tend to cost 1/10th as much as even a state college. The classes offered at community colleges tend to be basic classes, the core curriculum classes every student has to take, so students who are unsure what they might major in can get these classes out of the way inexpensively while also “getting their feet wet” at a community college. Class sizes tend to be fairly small for this general education classes as well; at a large state school, some of these classes might have a hundred or more students in them, whereas community colleges tend to have thirty to forty students per class. One final consideration is that community colleges tend to be close to home, which saves on living expenses as well.
