Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lyons District Curriculum
In science classes, students focus on key concepts, such as the physical world and engineering problems. Math classes spend time making sure students master important ideas before moving on to more complex problems, while attempting to provide real-world applications when possible. History classes use nonfiction texts and develop students’ research and analytical skills, so that students gain insight into how the past has influenced the present, and how the present might influence the future. English classes involve reading primarily nonfiction texts.
Students write analytical and persuasive essays by gathering evidence from their source material and using it to support their theses. Students are also encouraged to become involved in extracurricular activities, including music and sports, in order that they become well-rounded. The goal of this curriculum is to provide students with the knowledge necessary to make them strong citizens who are capable of competing on a global level.

Chalk Talk: College Applications
Which part of a college application is most important? That’s a difficult question to answer. Many would say the transcript, because it gives the clearest record of a student’s classroom performance, and therefore indicates how the students will do in college. But there are many other factors that contribute to college success, or lack thereof. This is why the college essay and the teacher recommendations are so vital for college admissions members. The essay and recommendations give insight into the student that can’t be found on a transcript. The essay can reveal the student’s passions and interests, and this can help show what the student might be successful at. The recommendations present expert testimony as to the student’s strengths and weaknesses. The transcript is very important, but without the context given by the essay and recommendations, it simply doesn’t paint the full picture.
