Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Roeland Park District Curriculum
Critical thinking and broad literacy skills are emphasized in all subjects of the Kansas College and Career Ready Standards curriculum. Students write analytical essays and practice critical and active reading skills. They make oral presentations and work on active listening skills. They learn how to solve problems both individually and in groups and develop time management skills working on projects. Research skills are also a part of the curriculum so that students are able to locate and evaluate high quality resources.
Diversity is prized and students learn to respect and learn from others. Students will have to interact with many diverse kinds of people in our increasingly global economy, and respect for diversity will serve them well. Many extracurricular activities are also offered, from club and varsity sports to performing and visual arts, music, and academic clubs. Community service is encouraged in the hopes that students will get into the habit of being involved in their community, not just in school, but after they graduate.

Chalk Talk: College Applications
There are several elements to a college application, many of them required, some recommended, but all of them necessary. The most significant is the transcript. The transcript contains a list of the high school classes the student has taken and the grade point average the student has attained. This gives insight into whether the student chose to take challenging classes in his or her field and how well the student did. Sometimes, the student wasn’t able to take certain classes that they might have liked because they weren’t offered. The school profile is a document that explains what classes are available to take, as well as average test scores and the like. Teacher recommendations are also very useful, though only one is usually required.
