The school district also promotes a spirit of teamwork and collegiality, which it feels is essential to individual growth and overall continues improvement. They also try to model and teach to the concepts of interconnectedness so that students will be able to operate in a global society as they plan for their post-secondary transition.
The curriculum emphasizes critical thinking and reading skills, focusing on nonfiction reading as well as fiction and poetry. Students gather evidence from their reading to write analytic essays. Oral presentations are valued, as is vocabulary acquisition. The goal is for students to delve below the surface with their reading and get to the heart of the authors’ intentions. Having a clear understanding of the importance of evidence also helps students express ideas, based on reasoning, rather than opinions. This critical thinking will serve them well in college and career.

Chalk Talk: College Resumes Do’s and Don’ts
One of the trickiest aspects of a college resume is the formatting. The layout should be clean and clear, easy to scan, with pertinent information jumping out to the reader. The applicant’s name, address, contact information, and grade point average should be centered at the top. The rest of the page should be broken into sections with activities grouped under major themes, like “Leadership,” “Awards,” “Community Service,” and the like. Under these titles, list activities that apply with a short description of each. This description should begin with the dates the student began and finished this activity, or indicating that it’s ongoing. Then, a brief list of responsibilities involved. Remember that this description doesn’t have to be written in complete sentences—it should only be a line or two, and should be very specific and to the point. Most resumes have room for four to six sections with two to four activities in each.
