Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Willowbrook District Curriculum
The curriculum promotes critical thinking, critical reading, and analytical writing skills in its curriculum while also encouraging science literacy and problem solving skills so that students are well-prepared for life after graduation, whether they pursue post-secondary education or directly enter the workforce. Students read complex, challenging texts in several different formats. They are assessed on understanding, authorial intent, and structural issues. Students develop theses from their reading and do research to gather evidence to support these ideas in well-reasoned essays.
The school also offers several diverse extracurricular opportunities, from sports to arts, music, and clubs. The extracurriculars also connect students with workshops, conferences, and leadership experiences. Students are encouraged to pursue community service as well, both for the school and in the wider community. Students are encouraged to take control of their own learning to develop a lifelong love of learning. Students who become engaged in their school and with their peers are more likely to be engaged and active in their community after graduation.

Chalk Talk: Regular Decision
Regular Decision is a type of college application. It has the latest deadline of most applications, anywhere from December 1 to as late as March. It’s a no-frills application. It contains all the elements of a usual application without restrictions. The most important part of any application is the transcript, which contains a class list and the student’s GPA. Standardized test scores comes next, if the college accepts them. After that, it can depend on the college. Recommendations from teachers are very important, as they give insight into the student’s work ethic and ability. The personal essays give insight into the student’s personality and interests. The application itself is mostly just a list of personal information and doesn’t have a huge bearing on the process. The resume lists extracurricular activities, which can be of great interest to colleges.
