Lincolnwood District and Curriculum
The district takes great pride in its mission to educate students, by evaluating their needs and meeting them in a rigorous, supportive academic atmosphere. By providing a variety of class offerings and extra-curricular activities, the school hopes to help students develop not only their minds, but their physical, cultural, and emotional selves. Students are given opportunities to succeed and to go beyond their own expectations. Though the school does maintain high academic standards, individual success is the true goal, so support is available for those who need it.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lincolnwood District Curriculum
All students are given opportunities for academic and personal achievement. Niles West High School’s curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core Standards, which are internationally refereed standards intended to give students the opportunity to compete on a global level. In humanities classes, students read primarily nonfiction texts, with fewer novels or poems. Students also write primarily analytical, persuasive, or informational essays, as opposed to creative writing, although they are introduced to multiple styles of writing.
These classes focus on critical thinking and critical reading skills so that students read proactively and analyze their reading in order to develop theses, gather evidence, and craft persuasive arguments. This sort of organization and structured thinking will serve them well in the future, whether they attend college or immediately enter the workforce.

Chalk Talk: Early Applications
Applying to college is a stressful time for students, and applying early might seem even more stressful. But there are many advantages to it. Applying early gives the student an opportunity to complete the process quickly, instead of dragging it out over months. Also, there are many advantages to early applications. Many colleges offer incentives for early applicants, such as waived fees, fewer requirements, and higher acceptance rates. Early applicants tend to have “first crack” at financial aid, as well, and this can be very beneficial considering that financial aid money is a limited resource that essentially goes “first come, first served.” Since they’ve finished their applications, they can move on to complete their financial aid and have that out of the way, and early applicants will receive the college’s decision sooner as well, which frees students up to move on to other matters, such as housing or work study programs.
