Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waterloo District Curriculum
There are many high school options available to students so that they have a level of choice in determining what they study. During freshman and sophomore year, many electives are available to help them recognize areas of interest. There are also advanced and honors courses available, which students should be preparing for during their first years of high school as well. Students can also take on an independent study which may focus on one topic or take an interdisciplinary approach. There are also career-technical courses available for students interested in studying topics related to a future career.
The curriculum stresses critical thinking skills across divisions. Students learn to tackle problems using logic. They also learn critical reading skills by reading a variety of challenging, complex texts in varying formats, for comprehension but also structural questions and authorial intent. They learn analytical writing skills and develop opinions about their reading, which they discuss and write about using information they’ve gathered to support their ideas. Oral presentations are also emphasized so that students can show what they have learned.

Chalk Talk: College Interviews
The first thing to consider when being interviewed by a college representative is who is interviewing you. Is it an admissions representative or an alumni? If it’s an alumni, this might not have the desired impact. Many alumni who conduct interviews are simply sharing information about the college. They often aren’t trained, and they don’t have much influence. It might not be worth the time. Some are, of course, and their recommendations can hold weight, but a good rule of thumb is to aim to have a member of the admissions committee conduct the interview, even if that means doing it over Skype or some such way; even though it isn’t in person, it will hold more weight. Of course, not all colleges offer interviews, and if they don’t, pursuing one probably isn’t as valuable.
