Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Spencer District Curriculum
This students first approach can be seen in the Spencer Community School District's implementation of the Iowa core curriculum in literacy. Beginning in kindergarten and continuing throughout elementary school and beyond, there is a strong focus on reading comprehension. All students are expected to be able to explain the main points of their reading and refer to the text for support. These basic skills will helps students learn more complex subjects in middle school and high school.
The student centered approach continues in the district math curriculum as students at the lowest grade levels are expected to use abstract thought processes and perseverance to solve math problems. This method is continued as students are introduced to algebraic expressions in middle school and as students encounter increasingly more complex concepts in algebra, geometry, and data analysis throughout high school.

Chalk Talk: The College Application Essay - Standing Out From the Crowd
Many students intent on going to college strive throughout their academic careers to look attractive to a college admissions officer. They work hard and get good grades, take Advanced Placement courses and join extracurricular activities to make their transcripts and college application essays look more appealing. All of these endeavors do help to make a well-rounded student but in many cases it means that they just look like everyone else applying to college. The way a college bound student can stand out is to follow her passions and be willing to use resources that aren’t readily available. If the local high school doesn’t offer a particular language course, a student should consider taking an online course and studying for the AP test on his/her own. A student might feel connected to a specific charity or cause. He should be willing to start a local chapter and demonstrate his willingness to pursue what he believes in. A genuine interest or passion for something is what can set a student apart on an admissions essay and make colleges take a second look.
