New Lenox District and Curriculum
The schools follow the Illinois Common Core Standards for mathematics and English language arts. This curriculum ensures that students receive a quality, rigorous education regardless of any learning differences. The curriculum emphasizes skills that students need to succeed in college and the professional world and is benchmarked with learning standards that ensure that students are equipped to compete in an increasingly technological economy, whether they intend to enter postsecondary education or the workforce.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Lenox District Curriculum
In Mathematics, the curriculum focuses on a greater depth of instruction on fewer topics within a school year, beginning with basic concepts like numbers and operations to ensure students have mastery of the foundations of mathematics before moving onto more advanced topics in middle school and high school. The hope is that students will have opportunities to apply their math skills to real world problems.
The curriculum offers a clear set of expectations for what students should know at the end of each grade level to ensure that all students meet similarly high standards. In English Language Arts, the curriculum emphasizes reading nonfiction and complex texts as well as writing analytic essays so that students develop the ability to gather information and use evidence to back their claims while also expanding their vocabularies. Students are encouraged to become critical readers and persuasive writers.

Chalk Talk: Advanced Placement
Advanced Placement (AP) classes seem like a great idea. Students get the opportunity to take college-level classes and get credit for them. Some students are even able to complete a semester’s worth of classes, or even more, before graduating high school. But AP credit can be more complicated than it seems. Some colleges don’t actually except AP credits; sure, it looks good for a student to have done well on an AP exam, but the college won’t actually count it as credit towards a class. Some colleges will simply place students in a higher level class because of AP exams. Some colleges want to make sure students are taking their curriculum, so they don’t let students place out of core classes. And, of course, not every high school offers AP classes. Some offer several AP opportunities, whereas others, usually because of size, don’t offer very many. This won’t affect a college’s decision to accept or reject a student, but it does give some students an advantage others lack.
