Wheaton District and Curriculum
The Community Unit School District 200 curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core standards. The Common Core emphasizes the teaching of key skills that students need to succeed in college and the professional world. The Common Core is based on standards developed by a collaboration of educators and community leaders so that students will be well equipped to compete in a global economy and prepared for post-secondary education as well as the workforce. By graduation, students should have gained strong independent critical thinking skills.
We currently cover the following Wheaton-area school district: Community Unit School District 200.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wheaton District Curriculum
The curriculum in this district focuses on implementing foundational topics and ideas at the elementary level which will give students the solid base they need. In Mathematics, key concepts such as order of operations and numbers are introduced and then built upon so that in high school, students can explore ideas such as more complex problems. In Language Arts, the focus is on grammar and structure so that in high school students can find information and back up their claims in literary analysis.
The district maintains a strong emphasis on academic excellence and promotes co-curricular and extracurricular student involvement. These schools value parent and community support and believe that each student deserves a challenging, rigorous, and comprehensive curriculum that leads to academic achievement, independence, social well-being, self-realization, good citizenship, and personal growth.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of the Interview in the College Process
When it comes to college applications, one of the most important tasks a student has is differentiating him/herself from other applicants. This can be difficult to do; test scores and GPA only go so far since lots of students might have similar profiles, or the student might not have the GPA and/or test scores s/he might like. One way to stand out is to interview. If an applicant is serious about a college, s/he should interview if that college offers interviews. One caveat: the value of the interview can often depend on who is performing the interview. Some colleges offer “alumni” interviews in which alumni interview prospective applicants. Most alumni aren’t actually trained admissions professionals; therefore, many alumni interviews are really just information sessions and don’t carry much weight. Some colleges do train their alumni and value their recommendations, of course, so it’s important to distinguish between the two. An interview with an admissions representative is usually more useful, though.
