Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hillside District Curriculum
The English language arts curriculum provides a series of Anchor Standards, or College and Career Readiness Standards, in Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Language. The Anchor Standards for Reading include the ability to read closely and recognize the purpose or theme of a text and be able to explain how it is supported. The Anchor Standards for Writing include teaching students to write informative texts that examine and convey complex ideas. Anchor Standards for Language require that students know the conventions of standard English grammar and usage.
The Math curriculum is designed to introduce students to all mathematic topics prior to high school and then to hone in on each specialized area so that students can do advanced studies in them. High school students work with algebra, geometry, functions, modeling, and statistics and probabilities. Data analysis and the ability to work with quantitative information is especially important, as is the ability to communicate students’ mathematical thinking when they solve a problem. Mathematical and financial literacy are also embedded in the curriculum.

Chalk Talk: Early Decision
Early Decision (ED) is an early, binding college application. They’re usually due November 1st, though some are due even sooner. Early Decision is binding, which means that students must sign a contract agreeing that they will attend this college if accepted. Other than the early deadline and being binding, Early Decision applications are similar to other applications. They require an application, transcript, teacher recommendations, essays, and possibly a resume or other additional materials. Early Decision applications can be very beneficial for applicants. Because the application is early, the applicant competes with fewer other applicants. Also, colleges tend to favor Early Decision applicants which leads to higher acceptance rates for these students.
