Cultivating a passion for lifelong learning
Kenilworth School District No. 38 strives to provide a rigorous and current curriculum in all subject areas, using a variety of instructional approaches to meet the needs of all learners. Our curriculum development process is approximately three to five years in length beginning with a review and synthesis of current research and best practices, followed by the development of the curriculum map/outline and the identification of the instructional materials.
A team of teachers representing all grade levels make up the curriculum committee. They analyze current assessment data and curriculum. Additionally, the standards for each discipline, including the Common Core State Standards, are examined. Model curricula is examined which has been developed by our state Board of Education and exemplar school districts. Collaboration occurs with the other New Trier Township elementary districts, as well as New Trier Township High School.
