Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Palos Heights District Curriculum
These schools follow the Illinois Common Core Standards curriculum, which emphasizes the reading of nonfiction texts, rather than novels or poetry, the writing of analytical essays, rather than creative writing, and a general exploration of the physical world, rather than abstract ideas. Critical thinking and analysis is stressed as the core of the curriculum. Students are nurtured to gain a solid work ethic which will inspire them to take responsibility for their own learning.
The schools also provide college guidance, citizenship preparedness, physical development, and a focus on developing the self. The overarching goal of these schools is to help all students succeed, regardless of learning styles, or any other factors. Time management and the development of a strong work ethic are also essential. This will help students strive to continually perform up to their greatest potential and abilities in all areas.

Chalk Talk: FAFSA Facts
With the rising costs of college attendance, financial aid has become more and more necessary. Parents and students are looking for the “magic bullet” that will make college more affordable. The reality is that there is no magic bullet, but there are several things to be aware of. The frontline in financial aid is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Most colleges base their awards packages on this. The FAFSA is an online application that goes live (or updates with each year’s new version) in January. It’s important that students fill this out as soon as possible, because financial aid is awarded “first come, first serve.” The FAFSA does require tax return information, and most people haven’t done their taxes in January. That’s fine; the FAFSA allows estimated returns, which can be updated, later. The FAFSA will help give students an idea of possible financial aid, but it’s important to stay in contact with financial aid departments in colleges in case clarification is needed.
