Westmont District and Curriculum
The schools follow the Illinois Common Core Standards in order to ensure that students receive a quality education regardless of their learning style. The curriculum sets clear expectations for what students should know by the completion of each grade level which means that all students meet similarly high standards. The curriculum emphasizes skills that students need to succeed in college and the professional world, skills that are benchmarked with international standards, so that students will be well-equipped to compete in today’s global economy.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Westmont District Curriculum
The curriculum emphasizes measuring student progress during the course of each year and measuring how well students master content and can apply or demonstrate that mastery, and how well students demonstrate critical thinking and problem solving skills as well as creative expression. The application of knowledge in each subject is tied to as many real world topics or problems as possible. State assessments in core subjects assess not only students but also the whole school.
Teachers are given flexibility to present material creatively, and students with different learning styles are held to the same high standards though also given the support they need in order to succeed. The goal is that students thrive and take responsibility for their own learning so that they become lifelong learners who will be prepared for post-secondary education and the working world.

Chalk Talk: Fast Apps
College applications can be stressful and require a lot of time. Many colleges offer “Fast Apps,” which are short applications that offer a quick decision. What students gain from this is, obviously, a quick decision, and what colleges gain from it is less paperwork. But the “shortness” of the application can be a detriment to some applicants. These applications usually only require a brief application, transcripts, and not even recommendations or essays. But recommendations and an essay could be the things to push a borderline student’s application into the “accepted” range. Recommendations and essays, resumes, and other supporting materials can help clarify a student’s transcript and performance and can “damage control” any possibly deleterious aspects. If a student is a slam dunk for a college, then a Fast App. is probably the way to go. Otherwise, even though it means having to wait a little longer, a regular application might be of more benefit.
