Town & Country District and Curriculum
The ditricts focus on maintaining safe campuses with a productive environment in which students feel secure enough to meet the challenges of a rigorous curriculum and succeed. The schools also encourage community involvement and offers many extracurricular opportunities for students. In addition to academic success, students are taught to make healthy choices in their own lives. The hope is that students take responsibility for their own learning and become engaged, driven learners and citizens who will be successful in their own lives beyond graduation.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Town & Country District Curriculum
Each school district maintains a varied and comprehensive curriculum which is rigorous and competitive. Expectations are clearly defined, and teachers refine their lesson plans to match the needs of students. The curriculum stresses critical thinking skills, which are implemented across disciplines. Analytical writing is also taught in many different classes, so that students have the skills they need to not only develop well-reasoned opinions on a variety of topics, but to support those opinions with facts.
Students read a variety of different types of texts, write about them in a variety of formats, and demonstrate strong and effective communication skills. To help students reach their academic potential, the district works closely with parents, community members, and other stakeholders to ensure the educational experience in the schools is challenging and relevant to today’s needs. The goal is to produce adaptable students who are ready to face the challenges of our ever-growing global community.

Chalk Talk: Early Action vs Early Decision
Early Action (EA) and Early Decision (ED) are both early application types, usually due November 15th and November 1st, respectively, but there is one major difference between them: ED applications are binding, which means students commit to attending that college if accepted. This can be a real boon, because it demonstrates a lot of interest in the college. Of course, a college really wants a student who really wants to go there. But it can also be a negative because the student is locked in; what happens if the applicant applies to another college, and gets a better financial aid package? They can try to negotiate, but they are committed, and there’s not much they can do. EA has some of the benefits of ED: it’s early, which does show dedication, but it doesn’t demonstrate as much commitment as ED. Of course, applicants are free to pursue better opportunities, which is certainly a bonus.
