Shorewood District and Curriculum
Two public school districts serve the community of Shorewood. Minnetonka School District has one elementary school in the city. All other public school students attend classes in the Westonka School District, which has five schools for students in kindergarten through the twelfth grade. Both school districts focus on helping each child achieve his or her highest potential. This is accomplished through individualized instruction carried out by a highly trained and dedicated corps of teachers and support staff. Since both the Westonka and Minnetonka districts are small in size, students and teachers enjoy small class sizes that further facilitate the success of each child.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Shorewood District Curriculum
The elementary science curriculum in Shorewood helps students develop the skills they need to conduct scientific inquiries. Students develop an understanding of the critical aspects of conducting research, including evidence gathering and analysis, data reporting, clear communication, and developing experiments that can be replicated by others. Students devise a scientific question and plan an investigation that might garner an answer to their question. Learners explore the value in experiments that do not garner similar results, and explain how they can use differing results to draw important conclusions.
As part of the high school health sciences curriculum in Shorewood, students learn how to advocate for themselves and others in order to promote improved health and wellness. Learners devise health-enhancing materials, such as fliers and brochures, to help educate younger students about health-related issues. Students also prepare and teach a lesson to sixth graders about how they can make health-enhancing choices. Fitness is a topic of discussion as well. Students learn various activities that they can engage in that will improve their health.

Chalk Talk: Get Colleges to Take Note of Your Child
Each year, admissions counselors at colleges and universities sift through tens of thousands of applications and essays to evaluate the quality of students that have applied. With so many other qualified students to compete against, your child will need to find unique ways to help them stand out from the crowd. This can be done, in part, by highlighting their unique experiences. For example, in their essay, your child should be sincere and discuss something of importance to them. Doing so will allow the admissions officer to connect with your child’s experience. Additionally, you child needs to exhibit passion in their essay. Discussing something about which they care deeply will demonstrate to admissions officers that they are serious about their education, as well as highlight how your child will be a unique and valuable addition to campus.
