Granby District and Curriculum
The most important thing for parents to understand about Granby Public Schools is their high quality system preparing students for participation in a global society. The incorporation of Connecticut’s Common Core of Learning in all core areas from K-12 ensures that all students receive an education founded on high quality expectations for their learning. Additionally, based on their learning all students are expected to be critically abstract thinkers, using effective communication while living as caring and productive citizens.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Granby District Curriculum
The new Common Core makes several important changes to current academic standards. It incorporates or includes the home languages as academic spring boards as well as contexts for further academic success. Acquisition of strong English language skills are expected of foreign students, however other content is not held back due to the language difference. Students also participate in extensive courses geared toward college and career with utilization of another language infused into the curriculum for high school students.
The Common Core State Standards are new curriculum objectives to help all students learn the same skills. They create clear expectations for what your student should know in key areas of reading, writing, listening, speaking, language and mathematics. They are aligned with college and career expectations and take into account the uses of technology and what students should know about the subject. The objectives also emphasize critical thinking skills that are essential to each subject and develop mathematic, scientific and other types of reasoning.

Chalk Talk: Planning for College
When planning for college, one key aspect is the campus visit. Remember, you will be spending the next four years at the college of your choice, so it is best to see it in person, not through the appealing photos posted on its website. You can usually set up a guided tour anytime of the year, but you will catch much more of a glimpse of student life from September through April. However, summer visits following your junior year may be beneficial if you are considering early application. Even if you take a tour in the summer, you always have the option of returning to the campus in the fall or winter to get the full scope of student life. Also, remember that your high school will likely give you a select number of excused absences for the purpose of college visits. Learn as much about each school as you can.
