Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Manhattan District Curriculum
Communication skills, science literacy, and critical thinking skills are the primary focus of the Illinois Learning Standards curriculum, along with strong math skills. Students are given real-world applications of their learning to ensure that they can relate and understand the lessons. The goal is to inspire a lifelong love of learning in students so that they will take control of their own learning and become self-guided learners. Students who take responsibility for their own education are more likely to succeed later in life.
The Illinois Learning Standards curriculum is competitive and rigorous with clearly stated expectations for what students should learn. It uses the Common Core Standards for Math and Language Arts and the Next Generation Science Standards, which increase the amount of time spent on topics such as engineering and environmental science. Teachers are given the freedom to mold their lesson plans to fit the individual needs of students, whether they need extra help catching up to grade level or more challenging work to keep them interested and engaged.

Chalk Talk: Early Decision
Early Decision (ED) can seem like a great opportunity for students. Though it’s due early, it also usually produces a quick response, with decisions going out before the end of the calendar year, traditionally. The format of the application is the same as a Regular Decision application, with the addition of a contract students must sign agreeing that they will attend this college if accepted. This makes Early Decision binding, so that even if they’re accepted elsewhere or offered a better financial aid package, the applicant must attend this college if accepted. This might seem like a drawback for some, but one benefit is that Early Decision tends to have a much higher acceptance rate than Regular Decision does. Colleges feel that Early Decision applicants have made a commitment to the college, so they are more open to working with the kids and making it work.
