Woodstock District and Curriculum
The schools mission is to offer rigorous and relevant educational experiences so learners become purposeful and engaged members of our diverse society. The schools strive for and expect excellence and offer schools where students learn without limits and develop personal growth. The schools appreciate and embrace diversity and promote respect, integrity, and dignity while providing an inviting environment for learning. Students receive individualized support to ensure they achieve the standards or to provide them with additional rigor and they also develop collaborative skills performing community service and working on in-class projects.
We currently cover the following Woodstock-area school district: Woodstock School District 200.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Woodstock District Curriculum
The curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core Standards, which are internationally benchmarked standards intended to give students a quality, rigorous education regardless of location, so that they will be competitive on a global level. The focus is on critical thinking and writing, observation of the physical world, real-world applications, and fundamental concepts which will prepare students for post-secondary expectations.
The hope is that students will not only develop mastery over these topics, but will also take responsibility for their own learning and thereby become lifelong learners. Students are expected to be responsible and accountable for their actions and learning and are helped to become productive, well-rounded citizens who make wise choices, demonstrate positive attitudes, virtuous character, and strong ethics. Extracurricular activities are also stressed as opportunities for students to express themselves in different ways.

Chalk Talk: Early Decision
College applications have become so competitive that students will jump at any opportunity to stand out, and that’s where Early Decision applications come in. These are early applications, often with a due date of November 1st, though some have begun to be even earlier. They are binding applications, which means that students sign a contract, along with parents, stating that they agree to attend this college if accepted. Even if another school offers a better financial package, the student is committed to this college. For many students, this can be a risky proposition. Early Decision applicants do often see much better acceptance rates, though, many times twice as high as regular decision acceptance rates. This is very appealing to many students, but it isn’t a silver bullet. Early Decision applicants do demonstrate a great deal of interest in the college, which is helpful, and they are competing against fewer other applicants, but an Early Decision application isn’t going to get a C student into Harvard.
