Woodbridge District and Curriculum
The mission of schools is to provide a supportive and rigorous environment in which all students, regardless of learning differences have the opportunity to develop as lifelong learners in order to become contributing, responsible members of a changing, global environment. The curriculum follows the Illinois Common Core standards in order to give students a quality, competitive education with clear expectations for what students should learn in English language arts and mathematics at each grade level.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Woodbridge District Curriculum
The English Language Arts curriculum emphasizes reading nonfiction and complex texts as well as writing organized and researched essays and building their vocabularies. The goal is to help students develop the ability to gather information and use evidence to back their claims. The curriculum places importance on nonfiction rather than fiction and writing analytically rather than creatively to teach students how to be critical readers and persuasive writers.
In Mathematics, the curriculum focuses on exploring key topics in great depth during the year. Beginning at the elementary school level, the curriculum focuses on basic concepts like numbers and operations so that students master the foundations of mathematics before moving onto more advanced topics in middle and high school. The curriculum requires all students to meet high standards and emphasizes skills students need to succeed in post-secondary education.

Chalk Talk: Which Is Better: An A in a Mid-Level Class or a B in an Honors Class?
This is a question students often ponder when considering whether to attempt a challenging class or stick with an easier, lower-level class, especially if the student is unsure how well s/he will fare in the challenging course. There isn’t an easy answer to this. A bad grade is a bad grade, but a B isn’t a bad grade. It’s important to keep in mind that colleges do prefer students who are willing to take risks and challenge themselves. Some schools weight grades, which means an AP or Honors class might be worth more, but colleges will then unweight those grades and re-determine the GPA however they see fit, so this isn’t really an answer, either. And a strong GPA that consists of a relatively easy course load isn’t going to impress selective colleges either. The truth is, of course, that it’s better to get an A in an honors level class.
