Quincy District and Curriculum
The Quincy Public School District provides students with a comprehensive academic experience enhanced by many quality extracurricular and enrichment offerings. To support core academics, technology enhancements are also quickly becoming a part of the learning experience and students not only use technology to access information but also increasingly as an area of study. Students also take part in various activities that promote physical fitness and wellness, focusing on age-appropriate topics, so that the whole child is well-educated.
We currently cover the following Quincy-area school district: Quincy Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Quincy District Curriculum
The district follows the Illinois Common Core Standards and Next Generation Science Standards to provide a framework for each subject area. The goal of each subject is to present students with the major topics in the discipline and then continually deepen their knowledge and understanding over the years. For instance, in Language Arts, writing begins in the elementary years and they are gradually taught ways to structure and organize their writing so they are able to write in a variety of analytic styles in high school.
The Math curriculum builds skills in numerical operations, algebra, geometry, and probability beginning during the early years and also increases the difficulty of each topic and the associated skills which students are taught each year. As students get into high school, they will find that the full year courses introduce them to concepts like geometric proofs, linear and non-linear equations, statistics and will have the tools to solve problems in each of these areas.

Chalk Talk: What Not To Look For In A College
There are more than three thousand, five hundred colleges and universities in the US. It can be daunting for students to sift through them, and many of the things one usually notices about colleges may not be the best qualities from which to pick a college to attend. For example, some colleges are famous for their athletics. If a student is an athlete, this can certainly be an important thing to consider when selecting a college, but otherwise, this can really be misleading. Many heavily athletic universities are also very large universities with large class sizes which may be detrimental to some students’ learning styles. Similarly, some students will look at a college’s location more closely than the strength of the college’s programs. Some students will consider even more arbitrary things such as a school’s colors. The most important things for prospective students to consider, on the other hand, are their educational needs and whether or not the college will successfully meet them.
