Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Princeton District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards curriculum is competitive, following international standards, meant to provide students with the skills and problem solving techniques, as well as the knowledge, they will need to succeed after graduation and compete in our global community. In Mathematics classes, students learn not just formulas, but why and how the formulas work so that they have a firm foundation in mathematics to build upon. They also learn how to use logical and quantitative reasoning.
Science literacy is valued and students learn to approach problems with clear plans for solving them. The Science curriculum is based on the expectations set out in the Next Generation Science Standards. All classes focus on learning about the process of scientific inquiry, established content knowledge, and real-world applications and solution when possible. Students begin in science classes by studying the natural world around them and advance to more challenging physics and engineering problems later on.

Chalk Talk: Early Decision II
Early Decision (ED) II applications are early, binding applications. Students apply by November 1st, usually, and if accepted, agree to attend that university. Because of this commitment, Early Decision applications tend to have a much higher acceptance rate than other application types. Students can only apply to one college at a time Early Decision, and since they tend to have the same deadline, if a student isn’t accepted, they usually don’t have the opportunity to apply Early Decision to another college. This is where Early Decision II comes in. ED II is an Early Decision application with a later due date, often in January or even February. Students tend to receive a decision from Early Decision in mid-December, so, if they don’t make the cut, this gives them time to apply to another college and receive the benefits of Early Decision a second time.
