Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Riverton District Curriculum
The Math curriculum is taught in strands that build in complexity upon previously taught skills. For instance, in middle school, students study ratios and proportional relationships which builds upon their skills in numerical operations and understanding fractions. At the high school level, these skills allow students to understand real and complex number systems, how vector and matrix quantities are used, and develop a depth of quantitative reasoning skills. In high school, students are expected to understand algebraic equations and expressions, properties of geometry and how to model geometric thinking, and work with data and statistics.
The Language Arts curriculum focuses on students ability to read fiction and informational texts, write for multiple purposes, and listen and speak effectively. In reading, students are guided to look for key details and supporting ideas in their non-fiction reading, recognize craft and structure in fiction writing, and to develop fluency in different styles of text while also acquiring strong vocabulary and persuasive language skills.

Chalk Talk: Choosing Electives
Choosing electives is an important part of course selection and you should start by choosing courses that will really interest you. Consider future careers that you may want to pursue. If you would like to start a business, take an entrepreneurship class; if you are thinking about being an accountant, enroll in an accounting class. This can help you continue to gauge your interest level in certain professions. Select classes that teach you skills that interest you and that can be helpful in many jobs, such as web design and Microsoft Office. Also, don’t forget to save a little room for a course you think you will simply enjoy. Even if you don’t plan to become a professional chef, if you like to cook, take a cooking class. Unless you are extremely overwhelmed with your schoolwork, try not to sign up for a study hall, as it may not be worth any credits. One final piece of advice: Avoid choosing classes based on what your friends are taking. You can see your friends at lunchtime, in the hallways, and outside of school, but the classroom is a place to investigate where your strengths lie.
