LaSalle District and Curriculum
The LaSalle Elementary School District and LaSalle-Peru Township High School District mission is to motivate students to develop the abilities to think critically, solve problems, and communicate effectively. LaSalle-Peru Township High School’s curriculum is rigorous and supportive. It follows the Illinois Learning Standards, which are college preparatory standards intended to provide a quality, equal education to all students. These academic and extracurricular activities prepare students for life after high school, whether they plan to continue their education at the collegiate level or go straight to the workforce.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the LaSalle District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards provide clear expectations for what students are supposed to learn by the end of each school year in each class. Teachers are afforded the opportunity to tailor their lesson plans to match the individual needs of students, though, to ensure that students are challenged at their own levels. The hope is that students will take personal responsibility for their own learning and develop a lifelong love of learning that will lead them to greater success academically and after graduation in their own lives.
The Illinois Learning Standards adopted Common Core Standards in Math and Language Arts so that students were receiving the same high quality learning objectives as students across the country. Each subject details the major topics and provide grade-appropriate targets for learning skills, knowledge and concepts, and critical thinking strategies related to the subject. The Science curriculum has expanded to include technology and engineering concepts, and to be integrated with math so that students receive a fully-integrated STEM learning experience.

Chalk Talk: College Interviews
Many students will prepare for a college interview by memorizing a bunch of facts about the college, which they will then recite to the interviewer. I can’t imagine anything more boring to have to listen to. A college interview is about making a human connection. The interviewer is trying to get to know the prospective student, to get a feel for his personality, how he handles himself, whether he seems serious about college, and any other insights he can gather. Be personable. Have a conversation. Be funny, even, though don’t go overboard with that. Passion is a great indicator of intellectual engagement, even if that passion is a little off-center, but try to connect it to something more useful. So, if you’re really passionate about a hobby, try to highlight things like commitment, engagement, work ethic, and the like. They want to see that you’ve got the potential to be a good student, so help them see that.
