Rathdrum District and Curriculum
The Lakeland Joint School District maintains a safe, healthy environment for students with rigorous academic standards. Students are challenged but supported. The school believes that well-rounded students who are engaged not only in their own academic pursuits but in extracurricular activities are more likely to succeed, not only in high school, but beyond. The school also encourages community service in the hopes of producing students who will become engaged, active citizens.
We currently cover the following Rathdrum-area school district: Lakeland Joint School District 272.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rathdrum District Curriculum
Lakeland Joint School District’s curriculum follows the Idaho state curriculum. Overall, the hope is that students will take responsibility for their own education and become self-directed learners who are ready for the challenges offered by our increasingly global community.
In humanities classes, students read nonfiction texts as well as novels and short stories. They read for comprehension as well as an understanding of the authors’ true intentions and the ramifications of the texts. Students also write analytical papers, gathering evidence from their reading and using it to support their suppositions. Similar methods are used for oral presentations. Vocabulary acquisition is also valued. The end goal is that students be able to back up their ideas with evidence, not just opinions. This kind of critical thinking will serve them well in college and career.

Chalk Talk: Recommendations
Most colleges ask for one to three recommendations for applicants; some require one, some recommend two. A general rule of thumb is to send two, since that will cover most requirements, though a handful of colleges do require three. A few don’t require any, but will usually accept one to three. Even if they’re not required, it’s a good idea to go ahead and send them. This is because recommendations can be very helpful, especially to students who are just on the border of fitting the college’s profile. Recommendations give insight into a student’s classroom behavior, study habits, work ethic, and other elements of a student’s engagement in his/her education which are of great interest to an admissions committee because they provide one of the clearest portraits of how prepared the student is for college and how serious of a student s/he is.
