Troy District and Curriculum
The Lincoln County School District curriculum follows the Missouri Learning Standards, The school strives to include the community in the school, and vice versa, so that students are involved in their community and learn the habits to encourage them to be involved as adults. The high school’s motto is to have a school where students can build positive relationships with teachers and within the community, and where academics are just as, if not, more important than activities, extra-curricular as well as co-curricular opportunities are valued educational tools, and technology is rooted in the core content of every class.
We currently cover the following Troy-area school district: Lincoln County School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Troy District Curriculum
In math classes, teachers focus on depth rather than breadth, with fewer topics covered, but those topics explored deeply. Students are taught how to use the math, but also how and why the math works, so that they understand mathematical principles and can then build on that understanding in the future with more advanced math. They can also confidently take this expertise with them to college and beyond to succeed. Rote memorization of formulas is stressed less than this understanding, though, of course, students do still have to memorize formulas.
To meet all the learning standards, the district has devised learning opportunities that are challenging, relevant, and achievement focused. Grade level expectations for math knowledge and skills are articulated both vertically and horizontally, so students build on what they learn from year to year. Cross-curricular studies provide real-world connections between math and other subjects, such as science, technology, and the arts.

Chalk Talk: Tips for Applying to College
Early Action (EA) is an early, non-binding college application type. Not every college offers it. The deadline for EA applications is usually November 15th, though it can vary whereas a Regular Decision application might be due as late as mid-January, or even later. The benefit of EA applications is that, since they’re early, fewer other students have applied so competition is less fierce. Also, colleges favor early applications since they demonstrate dedication and commitment on the part of the student. Acceptance rates are higher for EA applications. Some colleges will waive application fees for early applications, and most will respond fairly quickly, providing decisions within a couple months. The benefits of EA applications outweigh the one real drawback, which is that they are early. In fact, being early just means the student is finished sooner, so this is really an advantage, also.
