Harvard District and Curriculum
The Harvard Community Unit School District provides a competitive curriculum with clearly defined expectations. The Illinois Learning Standards (ILS) was designed to provide grade-level standards for all academic subjects and also expectations for students overall social-emotional learning. Teachers strive to individualize their instruction to ensure success. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning so that they develop a lifelong love of learning which will serve them after graduation, whether they pursue post-secondary education or directly enter the workforce.
We currently cover the following Harvard-area school district: Harvard Community Unit School District No. 50.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harvard District Curriculum
The high school English language arts curriculum provides a series of College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards that are designed so that students are prepared for college academics and workplace communications. Reading standards include the ability to understand what a text means explicitly and to make logical inferences about the text and its purpose. Students are also expected to be able to recognize themes of a text and analyze their development. Additionally, they should be able to analyze how and why individuals, events, or ideas develop in a story.
The Math standards are designed so that students are introduced to all topics of math at a grade-appropriate pace and are able to handle increasingly complex problem solving techniques in high school. The high school expectations include real and complex number systems, vector and matrix quantities, equations and rational expressions, inequalities, linear and quadratic functions, and many other advanced problem-solving methods. A key goal is that students should be able to look at any problem and figure out the best way to solve it.
