Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Summit District Curriculum

In mathematics classes, the curriculum emphasizes depth over breadth, beginning with foundational concepts which are fully realized before moving on to more complex topics, so that a solid foundation is in place. Science classes focus on real-world applications of lessons and a study of the physical world as well as engineering. In humanities classes, students read primarily essays and some novels and there is a major emphasis on non-fiction reading skills.

Students also write analytical essays, gathering information from their reading to use to support their thesis topic. Students develop strong oral communication skills as well as social skills. An emphasis is placed on extra-curricular involvement as well, including sports, music, art, theater, and clubs, so that students graduate as well-rounded, engaged individuals who are invested in their own educations as well as the world around them.

Summit District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

Summit School District and Argo Community High School support high learning standards and college and career readiness for all students. The school uses the Common Core Standards, which are clear, uniform, high, internationally-benchmarked standards that establish expectations for what students should learn in English language and mathematics classes. The Next Generation Science standards provide a curriculum for science and engineering education to ensure that students are prepared for success in college and the workforce.

We currently cover the following Summit-area school districts: Summit School District 104 and Argo Community High School District 217.

  • Walker Elementary School STEM Expo - Each year, Walker Elementary School hosts a STEM Expo to showcase learning in the district on the topics of science, technology, engineering and math, and to connect with community members and organizations that work in these fields.

Chalk Talk: School Profile

One college applicant has an A in a class that’s considered fairly non-rigorous, whereas another applicant has a B in an honors or advanced placement (AP) class. How does a college compare these students? Is the A of more value? What if these two students are at different school, one of which is known for its academic excellence, whereas the other is known for being somewhat lax: is an A at a lax school comparable to an A, or even a B, at a much stronger school? Evaluating a transcript can be tricky, and college selection committees may receive thousands of applications, almost all from different schools. They can’t possibly know each school well enough to make these distinctions. How do they do it? A document called a school profile helps. A school profile describes a school, its goals, philosophy, approach, and gives a sense of its rigor. The profile also tells what honors and advanced placement courses are available, which helps colleges determine how challenging a student’s course load has been.
