Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Star District Curriculum
In humanities classes, students are challenged with multiple kinds of texts, including nonfiction, novels, stories, and poems. Students read for comprehension but also to analyze meaning and intent. The benefit of this is that students are able to read, analyze, and write about all kinds of texts at a higher level. Students gather evidence from these texts to use in oral presentations or written essays so that they are well-versed in supporting their arguments and decisions with evidence and facts. Focus is also given to vocabulary acquisition and grammar rules so that students are able to communicate effectively and intelligently.
In math and science classes, students cover a fewer number of concepts in each grade but go into more depth on each concept so that students have a more complete understanding of key concepts. In math classes, teachers focus on explaining how and why formulas work, rather than just assigning them for memorization, so that students understand the foundations of mathematics and are able to move on to higher level concepts.

Chalk Talk: School Profile
One concern many college applicants have is that they’ll be compared unfavorably to students from other schools that offer more opportunities, or that a college won’t really know how to read the student’s transcript and understand what the classes really mean. The School Profile attempts to solve these problems. The profile is a document that explains specific aspects of a high school, from how many honors, Advanced Placement (AP), or other specialized classes are offered, to the rigor and atmosphere of the school. This way, a student who took three AP classes when only three were offered isn’t penalized, whereas another student might have taken three, whereas many were offered. Also, a School Profile gives insight into the rigor of a school; if s student attended a school that wasn’t very rigorous, it often isn’t really his/her fault, especially if the student took every advanced class offered, for example.
