Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Summit Township District Curriculum
The majority of students begin their public school careers in a Prekindergarten program that is housed in the elementary schools. These programs are used to give students a strong foundation in Language Arts and Mathematics that will carry through to other grade levels. The typical curriculum consists of working with the alphabet, numbers, and basic sight words. In order to keep these young students engaged, the curriculum is taught through play and other fun activities.
This learning through play type of curriculum in Prekindergarten will be the foundation that students will use once they enter the regular elementary grades. As students become more fluent with the basic reading and writing skills they will then apply them to more challenging and relevant assignments. Instead of drawing picture books about themselves, they will research a famous American and write an essay.

Chalk Talk: Career Education
As the call for career ready graduates has grown, more and more high schools have begun offering high quality courses geared toward certain careers. Some school districts have even built state-of-the-art facilities that allow students to gain hands-on experience in their trade. The courses being offered to students these days have greatly expanded beyond the wood working and mechanic shop classes of the past. Students can now choose from among hundreds of courses for most careers imaginable. Some of the career trades offered include health sciences, engineering, and computer programming. Once a student chooses which industry they are interested in, they can choose more specialized courses. For example, a student interested in culinary arts can choose to take pastry classes in a fully equipped industrial-sized kitchen. Meanwhile, a student who wants to be a doctor can take a class in human anatomy. The ability of schools to offer more individualized choices allows students to gain a head start on their future.
