Wheeling District and Curriculum
The districts curricula is based on the Illinois Common Core standards for Math and English Language Arts and the Next Generation Science Standards for science. The focus is on key topics which are implemented in formative grades and then built upon with more complex ideas so that students are ready for college academics. These concepts are then applied in real-world situations. By giving students the ability to connect school learning with real life situations, the district ensures that students understand the value of their education and develop a love of lifelong learning.

Chalk Talk: Studying for Standardized Testing
One complaint students often have is that it’s impossible to study for SAT or ACT testing. This is given as an excuse not to prepare for the tests. The truth is, it’s difficult to study for the content of the tests in certain ways. In general, students might struggle trying to study more advanced topics than they’ve had in classes, though they can certainly attempt to memorize certain key concepts such as vocabulary. One way students can prepare for standardized tests is to “study” strategies. One of the most important elements of these tests is the time factor, and strategies can help students deal with this effectively. Also, strategies can help students not be intimidated by the tests, themselves. Looking at the structure of certain questions can give clues as to what type of answer to look for can help students guess more effectively. Developing reading strategies can help students conserve time when facing long reading passages. Even realizing that it’s okay (and even necessary) to skip certain questions can help students conserve valuable time and energy on these tests.
