Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mascoutah District Curriculum
Mascoutah CUSD provides a safe learning environment that is conducive to student success. The elementary schools focus on literacy and mathematical problem-solving development. In middle school, students rotate through all subjects and build on their reading and math skills so they can do more complex work. The high school curriculum includes more options including advanced academics and career-technical learning. Community service is also emphasized and students learn that all relationships should be based on personal responsibility.
Mascoutah High School provides extracurricular opportunities to all students. Students are encouraged to become involved in their school and in their local community in order to teach them to be engaged, active citizens after graduation.

Chalk Talk: Early Decision vs. Early Action
The biggest differences between Early Decision (ED) and Early Action (EA) applications are the due dates and the restrictions. Early Decision applications are due November 1st, and Early Action are due November 15th. There can be some variation on this from college to college, but they tend to follow the same deadlines. They also both tend to result in decision before the end of the calendar year, which is a relief to many students. Early Decision is binding, which means students sign a contract agreeing to attend that college if accepted, whereas Early Action has no such restriction. There are variations on these: Restricted Early Action, which is rare, doesn’t allow students to apply to any other colleges until they receive a response, and Early Decision II offers a later deadline.
