West Chicago District and Curriculum
The districts focus on academic innovation and maintaining a dynamic and nurturing environment with a comprehensive student support program to help ensure students become life-long learners and responsible members of our diverse society. The curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core Standards for Mathematics and English Language Arts and the Next Generation Science Standards. The standards focus on the major topics in each subject so that all students in the state receive the same high quality standards, but are written so that teachers are free to use their best method to deliver each learning objective.
We currently cover the following West Chicago-area school districts: Benjamin School District 25, West Chicago Elementary School District 33, Community High School District 94, and St. Charles Community Unit School District 303.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Chicago District Curriculum
The school’s standards strive to ensure that all students, regardless of learning style, receive a quality education and therefore are able to meet similarly high standards. The curriculum focuses on skills students will need to succeed in post-secondary education and the professional world as well as be competitive on a global level. In Mathematics and Science classes, students focus on foundational concepts which are essential for college readiness. The teachers try to give students as many opportunities as possible to apply their learning to real-world situations and problems.
In English Language Arts and Social Science classes, the curriculum focuses on analytical writing and the reading of complex, nonfiction texts. Students learn to be critical readers and persuasive writers and develop the ability to gather, analyze, and present information to support their claims while building arguments. Across the curriculum, students are encouraged to become self-motivated, life-long learners.

Chalk Talk: Early Decision vs. Early Action
Early Decision (ED) is an early, binding college application. “Binding” means that students are contractually obligated to attend this college if accepted. Early Action (EA) is an early, non-binding application, so students aren’t obligated. Because ED is binding, applicants are demonstrating a lot of interest and commitment to the college, which is a good thing, in the eyes of the admissions staff. ED acceptance rates are often dramatically higher than Regular Decision acceptance rates. There can be drawbacks, though; for one thing, since the application is binding, the student isn’t able to accept another offer, even if it includes a better financial aid package. EA, on the other hand, doesn’t carry the same weight as ED. It’s early, which means students are competing against fewer applicants, and students aren’t locked into attending that college. If a student isn’t sure s/he wants to attend this college, EA is probably the way to go, but if s/he is absolutely sure this is his/her top choice, ED might be a good option.
