Streamwood District and Curriculum
The Streamwood districts’ curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core Standards. The intent is that every student will leave their high school with the knowledge and skills necessary to enter a two or four-year post-secondary institution or enter the workplace fully prepared for a successful career. This is accomplished by focusing on essential learning; for instance, students are expected not just to understand what they have read, they should also be able to analyze it. Such types of critical thinking skills are overarching goals of the curriculum.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Streamwood District Curriculum
The curriculum is intended to cultivate a safe, orderly, and effective environment that promotes mutual respect and encourages citizenship. A culture predicated on mutual respect and citizenship enhances students’ academic success and prepares them to be responsible, contributing members of society. The curriculum focuses on certain key topics in depth over the course of the school year so that students have a comprehensive understanding of these fundamental concepts.
In Mathematics, these concepts focus on numeracy, algebra, and geometry in middle school before moving on to more complex topics. In English Language Arts, the focus is on analysis of complex texts and the reading of nonfiction, as well as building vocabulary. The Science curriculum is based on the Next Generation Learning Standards which focus on real-world applications of concepts and real-world problem solving. These curricula are intended to help students prepare for standardized testing in order to get into college as competitive students.

Chalk Talk: ED vs. EDII
Early Decision applications are binding college applications with an early due date. Often, the Early Decision due date is November 1st, but it can vary by college. This is a binding application in that the student, parent, and college counselor signs a contract stating that the student agrees to attend this college if accepted. There are some advantages to this: the student is competing against fewer applicants and has demonstrated interest. But since this is a binding application, the student can only apply to one college at a time Early Decision. Students often will use the Early Decision option for colleges that are a reach, and if they aren’t accepted, they might feel as though they’ve wasted this opportunity to get a leg up with their application. This is where Early Decision II comes in. EDII is later round of Early Decision applications, usually offered by second-tier colleges. EDII applications have a later due date, maybe mid-December or even early to mid-January. EDII allows students to reap the benefits of Early Decision applications twice, which is a real boon to applicants.
