Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Vernon Hills District Curriculum

In English language arts and humanities classes, students focus on reading complex nonfiction texts, gathering, analyzing, and presenting information through the writing of analytic response and persuasive essays. Students are expected to be good listeners, good readers, and good writers. In mathematics and science classes, students focus on key topics which lay the foundations they will need to build upon for more complex and difficult learning later. The focus is on real-world applications of problems and lessons.

Students are encouraged to develop an ability to think critically and solve problems, to communicate effectively, and to appreciate and demonstrate creativity. The overall goal is for students to develop a life-long desire to pursue knowledge and to prepare students for post-secondary educational opportunities and the working world. The curriculum is internationally competitive so students are prepared to enter a global economy.

Chalk Talk: Financial Aid Facts

Financial Aid is a tricky thing because there are so many options. There are a multitude of scholarships available through organizations, businesses, foundations, and the like. These tend to be rather small, and are difficult to find. Many of them are discovered through word of mouth. One good source is colleges’ financial aid departments. Websites like Fastweb help, also, but one possible drawback to keep in mind is that some colleges will deduct these scholarships from the student’s aid package. Depending on the college, sometimes much of the “aid” offered is really just loans. There are two types of loan: subsidized and unsubsidized. Subsidized loans are ones for which the government pays the interest while the student is in college. Unsubsidized are ones for which the government does not pay the interest, so interest accrues over the course of four years. These loans can be prohibitive to students in the long term—even seemingly small loans add up over four years, though a truly small loan can be useful in helping a student establish credit.
