Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rock Hill District Curriculum
The elementary Language Arts curriculum builds skills in reading, language conventions, research, writing, and literary response and analysis. By Grade 5, students can understand how characters are developed, how character relates to conflict in stories, and why authors use vivid words and dialogue. High school standards require more critical thinking and analysis; students read fiction, literary nonfiction, poetry and drama from the Old English through the contemporary eras.
The K-5 Math curriculum builds skills in number and operations, algebra, geometry, measurement, and data analysis and probability. By Grade 2, students learn to round numbers, compare quantities, create survey questions, work with time, and analyze three-dimensional shapes. By Grade 5, students can measure to the nearest 1/8 inch, apply divisibility rules, analyze situations that show change over time, and classify shapes as congruent. By Grade 8 students can work with functions and can represent applied problems using matrices. By Grade 12 students have taken algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and pre-calculus.

Chalk Talk: Top Extracurricular Activities for Students Headed to College
Your child’s extracurricular activities can make him or her an attractive prospect to colleges and universities. Nevertheless, not all clubs are created equal in the eyes of admissions officers. Consider asking your child whether he or she might be interested in any of the following.
Debate Team, Speech Club or Mock Trial. Many Americans say their biggest fear is public speaking, and yet your child will eventually have to give presentations or go to an interview. Students in debate team or speech club often develop speaking and listening skills that can make them seem more poised and confident than others in their age group. These qualities stand out.
Community Service. Service work in the community requires students to step outside their comfort zone, and working with different kinds of people can broaden a student’s perspective. Admissions officers know how to spot a token piece of service, but they value students who have shown a long-term commitment to the community.
