Students attending Sandwich Community Unit School District are taught according to the objectives laid out in the Illinois Learning Standards. The school believes that all students should be given opportunities to succeed and find areas in which they excel. The curriculum is competitive and well-researched in order to provide students with the learning and tools they will need to face the challenges of our increasingly global society. Expectations for students are clearly communicated, not only how students are expected to behave and treat each other, but also what students are expected to have learned by the end of each school year.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sandwich District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards (ILS) is a series of subject-specific frameworks that detail the progression of learning that students will do in their academic courses. The ILS incorporates the Common Core State Standards for English language arts and Math which focus on procedural ability and critical thinking skills. Both subjects are taught with an eye to how they support other areas of learning and are the focus of assessments that are able to pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of each student.
Students are expected to behave and treat each other respectfully and to make healthy and positive choices regarding their own lives and social interactions. Students are also given many extracurricular opportunities so that they can succeed outside the classroom. Kinetic learners have opportunities for success in sports, and clubs and arts offer students opportunities to expand their interests. Community service is also valued so that students learn to give back to their community and their school.

Chalk Talk: School Profile
The school profile is a document that gives colleges insight into a school’s atmosphere, academic rigor, and all sorts of demographic information. It is provided by the college counselor or registrar and is used in conjunction with the transcript to help determine whether a student is ready for college-level work. The school profile tells the college what honors or Advanced Placement (or other advanced) classes are offered at the school, for example, so that, if the student has taken two AP classes, while only two are offered, the college doesn’t fault that student. Of course, if many are offered and few or none were taken, the college will wonder why. Similarly, the school profile gives insight into the focus and tone of the school to help give insight into the student.
