The Peoria Heights Community Unit School District follows the Illinois Learning Standards, a rigorous K-12 curriculum that uses a series of objectives to define what students should know and be able to do in each subject. The objectives call for students to learn a range of skills and concepts in each subject as well as the ability to think critically about what they are learning. They are also encouraged to find connections between different areas of learning to see how they connect. They are also assisted in developing a sense of independence in their learning so that they can self-direct their future learning experiences.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Peoria Heights District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards curriculum is strong and provides learning objectives that prepare students for competitive college and career opportunities. Students are given clear expectations for what they should learn by the end of each school year, and teachers are given the flexibility to tailor their lessons to fit the specific needs of individual students, whether that means helping a student catch up to grade level or offering more advanced work to keep a high-performing student challenged.
The curriculum focuses on critical thinking skills, critical reading skills, analytical writing skills, and science and math literacy. Students learn about the process used by scientists to study a theory and how to formulate their findings. They also learn how to attend to precision in mathematical problem-solving. Students learn how to communicate effectively in both written and oral forms in a variety of formats. They learn to support their opinions using facts and evidence, which they learn to gather through research.

Chalk Talk: Public University
There are many benefits to a public university that might not be obvious. Cost is the main one; because public universities are funded by the state, their tuition rates are much more affordable. In-state students get the largest discount, but even out-of-state students receive a much lower tuition rate than at most private colleges. Many public universities have very strong departments in fields that lead to higher-paying jobs, such as sciences, health care, and the like, so this can be a good option for students who have a clear plan for their futures. Because public universities tend to be larger, they also offer more options and opportunities, not just academically, but socially.
