Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Monticello District Curriculum
Drew Central uses the Common Core Standards and will soon implement the PARCC assessment to replace the current state test. The district has its own website dedicated to math instruction at each grade level from K-8. This includes a list of skills students should gain proficiency in during each of the four quarters of the school year; for example, one of the things third graders should know by the third nine-week period of the year is their multiplication facts.
Monticello is committed to 21st century learning. The district’s websites suggests a free educational mobile app daily and offers a “technology tip” weekly.

Chalk Talk: Tips for Applying to Colleges
The college application process may be one of the most stressful situations some students will have in their young lives. Here are a few tips to ensure that you give yourself the best chance possible to be accepted by the colleges you apply to: Know the school’s requirements, meaning GPA and test scores. This information may be more difficult to find than you might think, but dig your heels in until you uncover what you are looking for. More and more universities are accepting ACT scores alone, but several schools still prefer or require that the SAT be taken. Take the application essay, which many schools require, very seriously. This is a way to showcase yourself to the school, so create a story about yourself. Depending on the essay prompt, you may also have the opportunity to portray your knowledge of the school and academic program you may interested in and show not only that you have a strong opinion of it but why you favor it.
