Park Forest District and Curriculum
The schools believe that learning is a process and not a result. Their goal is to teach students to be active, productive, life-long learners. As such, students must develop communication, computation, social, psycho-motor, critical thinking, and personal living skills. The schools expect students to produce quality work which is assessed by the degree to which students’ progress toward clearly defined outcomes for learning. The successful operations of the schools depends on the ability of the schools and community to provide a safe and healthy learning environment and the ability of the students to assume the responsibility for self-discipline and learning.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Park Forest District Curriculum
The districts curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core standards which emphasize the teaching of key skills that students need to succeed in college and the professional world. The curriculum is based on international standards so that students will be well equipped to compete in a global economy and prepared for postsecondary education as well as the workforce.
In Mathematics, key concepts such as order of operations and numbers are introduced and then built upon so that in high school, students can explore ideas such as more complex problems. In English Language Arts, the focus is on grammar and structure at the elementary level so that in junior and high school students can focus on finding information and backing up their claims in complex literary analyses. In Science, students focus on basic concepts involving the natural world in elementary school and move on to more complex ideas like solving engineering problems in junior and high school.

Chalk Talk: The Interview Process
Interviewing with a college admissions representative is a great way to make yourself stand out. It’s important to dress appropriately and behave maturely and confidently. Interviews shouldn’t be stuffy, overly formal situations. They should be more like a conversation. To prepare for an interview, it’s a good idea to have some questions in mind, but memorizing historical data about the college isn’t going to impress a representative. On the other hand, a pointless, rambling conversation isn’t going to impress anyone, either. Demonstrating interest and passion will impress the interviewer, as will showing yourself to be poised, mature, and well-spoken. Humor is a plus, though it can be overdone, and confidence is always a plus. Developing a rapport with the admissions representative is more important than what is actually discussed. Remember that the purpose of the interview is to help the admissions representative get to know you in order to help him/her decide if you are a good fit for the college.
