Tolleson District and Curriculum
The districts offers a rich curriculum that is in alignment with Arizona’s rigorous College and Career Readiness program. Commom Core Standards are used to teach students skills in reading, writing, and comprehension that are crucial to success in all other core classes, such as history, social studies, math and science. As students proceed through grade levels, new skills are built upon previously learned skills. In this way, not only do students learn new skills, they review earlier skills so that they have a solid foundation. When students graduate they will have gained the skills and knowledge needed for college and career opportunities.
We currently cover the following Tolleson-area school districts: Littleton Elementary School District, Tolleson Elementary School District, Tolleson Union High School District, and Union Elementary School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tolleson District Curriculum
In Math, the standards develop students’ abilities in the key areas of numeracy, algebra, geometry, and data analysis each year. Although during the early years, students learn what may seem simple lessons in pattern recognition, these abilities are later applied in linear equations and other algebraic functions. At the high school level, students can also take trigonometry, pre-calculus, and statistics in preparation for college level math or a technical career.
In Language Arts, the curriculum emphasizes reading, writing, listening and speaking, media viewing, and research. Research skills by learning the basics of accessing information in the library and move on to using databases specific to certain subjects to conduct research online. Students are also taught to evaluate their sources as well as properly reference sources they use in a work. As students progress in high school, independent research becomes a bigger part of their expectations and one which prepares them for college.

Chalk Talk: How Do I Become a Better Communicator?
Communication is definitely a learned skill and it is not an easy one. Communication is complex and involves more than talking. The most important thing to remember is to listen actively. Understand what the other person is saying. Repeat what they say to make sure you did understand. Try not to create arguments or “come backs” in your head while you should be listening. When you are talking watch the other person's face because expressions will tell you if what you are saying is being accepted or understood. Also watch body posture, and be aware of your own body language too. Be willing to listen, showing that you respect the person you are speaking with and what they have to say, and you will be better able to carry on meaningful discourse on any subject.
