The schools strive to prepare graduates to enter the workforce and/or continue their educational pursuits after graduation. The schools offer a wide range of curricular offerings along with many co-curricular groups. In 2004, District 201 was selected to receive the “What Parents Want” award given by School Match, a nationwide service that helps corporate employees and their families find schools that match the needs of their children.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Swansea District Curriculum
The schools believe in providing a student-centered environment that fosters the intellectual, physical, and moral growth of their students. In these rigorous, supportive educational environments, students are challenged but also given interventions when necessary. The curriculum follows the Illinois Common Core Standards so that all students are provided an equally strong education. The seven areas of learning encompassed by the standards include English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Technology Arts, Career Development and Occupational Studies, Social Studies. Health, Physical Education and Family and Consumer Science, and Languages Other Than English.
The primary goal of the curriculum is to enhance critical thinking skills, exercise analytical reasoning to solve problems, and to apply this learning to real-world events when possible. Students are taught to be effective critical thinkers and communicators who observe and listen attentively and write and speak cogently and persuasively.

Chalk Talk: 2-Year Vs. 4-Year Colleges
Community colleges used to have a bad reputation. There were considered a last resort—a place someone goes because they can’t get into a four-year college. The reality is much different from this old-fashioned attitude, though. There are many advantages to attending a community college. Price is the biggest advantage. Community college classes tend to cost a tenth as much as even state college classes. Community colleges provide mostly basic classes that almost every student has to take. At a larger college, enrollment sizes for these basic classes can be crowded, but community colleges tend to have small class sizes. Community colleges are very aware of the needs of students and offer support for students who may have been out of the classroom for a while. And lastly, community college credits will transfer to most four-year colleges, just as any college will.
