Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Round Lake Beach District Curriculum
The curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core Standards for mathematics and English language arts, and the Next Generation Science standards, which are internationally competitive standards. The primary focuses of these standards are on critical thinking skills, strong research and analysis abilities, and an emphasis on real-world applications. Students read complex texts and gather evidence to support their claims. They learn concepts which are then built upon with increasingly complex ideas.
Honors and Advanced Placement classes are offered as accelerated courses that require students to work independently and demonstrate high levels of critical and analytic thinking. Honors classes are offered in core subject areas that demand high levels of cognitive and problem solving processes. The instructional pace is rigorous and emphasizes curricular depth, breadth, and enrichment while ensuring that all students have the supports needed for success.

Chalk Talk: Interviews: What to Expect
Many colleges offer interviews, and a handful require them for applicants. If a student hopes to enter the arts, auditions and interviews are often required. But if they’re not required, are they worthwhile? It can depend on the situation. If the interview is with a member of the admissions staff, then it’s probably a good idea. Interviews are a way to help admissions committees “put a face to the name” of students. Some students have a lot of social acumen, and an interview can really help these students stand out. Some colleges, on the other hand, offer interviews with alumni. Often, these alumni aren’t actually trained by the admissions staff, and these interviews don’t hold much weight; they’re basically information sessions. Some colleges to train their alumni and do place value upon their recommendations, though, so don’t immediately discount these situations without further evidence. Another problem students might have is travel. If a college is very far away, it might be difficult for a student to interview, but many colleges are compensating for this by having regionally-based representatives who actually live and work in your area, as well as offering Skype or other electronic interviews.
