Oak Brook District and Curriculum
The school districts serving Oak Park students all follow the Illinois Learning Standards which provide elementary and secondary frameworks for each core subject and including Foreign Languages, the Arts, and Social Emotional Learning. The Standards also incorporate Common Core Standards in Math and English Language Arts which contain a series of rigorous expectations designed to develop literacy and mathematic problem-solving skills progressively each year. All subjects have their major topics detailed and the skills, knowledge, and concepts that students will learn within the topics.
We currently cover the following Oak Brook-area school districts: Bourbonnais Elementary School District 53, Hinsdale Township High School District 86, Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205, Community High School District 99, and DuPage High School District 88.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oak Brook District Curriculum
The Common Core Standards in English Language Arts require that when students start high school they are able to analytically read and comprehend literary and informational texts. They are expected to cite textual evidence, determine central ideas and themes, and analyze how an author builds upon supporting evidence to make their point. They also need to recognize the role of language and vocabulary, and how certain word choices point to an author’s intent. In addition, they should be able to recognize how ideas connect across texts.
The Common Core Standards in Math use the elementary and middle school years to introduce students to a wide range of concepts in numerical operations, algebraic relationships, geometry and measurement, and proportions and statistics. In high school, major expectations are broken down by Number Systems, Algebra, Functions, Modeling, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. Quantitative reasoning, an understanding of computational tools, and the ability to determine the best way to solve a problem are overarching goals of the Math standards.

Chalk Talk: Early Action
Early Action (EA) is a type of college application. It’s early, with a due date in November, usually. It’s not binding, which means that students apply without any restrictions or obligations; they’re free to attend whatever college they wish. Because it’s early, EA has a higher acceptance rate, and students are competing against fewer other applicants. Acceptance rates aren’t as high as Early Decision, but they are higher than Regular Decision. The only real difference between EA and Regular Decision is the due date, and the fact that EA applicants will probably have received their decision before Regular Decision applications have even been finished. Still, without the restrictions and obligations of some other application types, EA is a great choice for many applicants.
