Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Preston District Curriculum
Preston High School’s curriculum focuses on analytic writing and critical thinking skills along with real-world applications of scientific and mathematical principles. Students read complex texts and write intelligently about them, using direct evidence and quotes to support their arguments and assertions. In math classes, students investigate how and why mathematics principles work so that they have a firm foundation on which to build.
In science classes, students begin with studying the natural world and move on to more complex topics like engineering in advanced classes. In all classes, teachers strive to apply lessons to the real world whenever possible so that students are more likely to be able to relate and comprehend key concepts. Students learn effective communication skills, critical thinking and problem-solving skills while in high school that they can apply in their post-secondary education and the workforce.

Chalk Talk: Finding The Right Fit
In order to find the right college for a student, we must first figure out what the student needs in a college. There are broad needs, such as majors offered, cost, graduation rates, and job placement, and there are essential. Other needs might include location, availability of transportation, and the like. But there are also more specific needs that have to do with the student’s learning style. The student has to do some soul searching in order to figure out what s/he really needs in a college, and balance this with what is available. For example, some students aren’t very good at rote memorization. They need to understand something before they can memorize it, and to understand it, they may need to ask questions. A college with small class sizes might be essential to a student like this, so that s/he can actually interact with the instructor. Support services might also be essential. The tone of the college is important as well, because the student has to be comfortable there to succeed.
