Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Litchfield District Curriculum
In English classes, students read complex, challenging works in a variety of formats, from digital to print texts in genres including nonfiction, short fiction, poetry, and novels. Students read for comprehension and also to evaluate authorial intent, structure, and other technical aspects. In this way, students learn how to structure their own writing while engaging with their reading. They also develop theories about the reading and gather evidence that they use to support these theories in well-reasoned, thoughtful analytical essays.
In mathematics classes, students study how and why the math works, rather than just memorizing formulas. Students cover fewer topics more in depth so that they have a firm foundation of mathematical understanding. Science literacy is also focused on at Litchfield High School as is the ability to communicate original scientific findings. Students study the world around them and progress to more complicated engineering problems. They learn to develop and test hypotheses using rational thought and scientific processes.

Chalk Talk: Restricted Early Action
Early Action (EA) applications are a popular type of college applications. Unlike Early Decision, EA isn’t binding, which means that the student is free to attend whichever college they want to. They have an early deadline, usually November 15th, but this also means students tend to receive an answer before the end of the calendar year. A rare type of EA application is Restricted, which means that the student can’t apply to any other college until they’ve received a response from this one. Once they’ve been accepted or rejected, or waitlisted, they’re free to go ahead and apply elsewhere if they want, but many students who’ve been accepted will go ahead and deposit and attend this college.
