Grayslake District and Curriculum
The schools encourage students to engage in challenging tasks in which they draw upon personal strengths and diverse experiences, create meaningful connections, and develop innovative problem-solving skills. With the confidence and character gained from these experiences, it is hoped that students will pursue their individual passions and participate responsibly and effectively in their communities. The curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core Standards for Math and English Language Arts and the Next Generation Science Standards, which focus on instructing students in key concepts, whether it be in Math, Science, or English Language Arts.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grayslake District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, the Common Core standards emphasize reading nonfiction and complex texts as well as writing analytical essays to teach students to be critical readers and persuasive writers. These standards are intended to develop students’ ability to research and gather information and use evidence to back their claims while also expanding their vocabularies.
Similarly, in Mathematics, the curriculum emphasizes a depth of instruction focused on a small range of topics within a school year. At the elementary school level, the standards emphasize basic concepts like numbers and operations so that students have mastery of the foundations of mathematics before moving on to more advanced topics in high school. The goal is that students will be able to apply their mathematic skills to real world problems and challenges in high school and beyond.

Chalk Talk: Early Decision vs. Early Action
Early Decision (ED) is an early, binding application. It’s due sooner than other applications, often by November 1st. Since it’s a binding application, students, parents, and a college counselor sign a contract stating that the student will attend this college if accepted. ED applications have some inherent benefits; for example, students compete against fewer other applicants and demonstrate interest in the college, but one drawback is that it is binding, so students who apply ED had better be sure this is their top choice college. Another application type is Early Action (EA). It’s also early but isn’t binding. With EA, students apply early, often November 1st or 15th, but are free to accept offers from other colleges. EA offers the benefit of allowing students to apply early and therefore compete with fewer other students, but doesn’t carry the same weight as ED.
