Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Alton District Curriculum
Alton School District students are taught to be effective citizens of the world who exhibit school pride through support of school activities, involvement in community life, and who contribute positively to the global environment in meaningful ways. Students who are engaged in their communities and take responsibility for their own learning are more likely to become active, engaged citizens and to find success later in life, whether they pursue post-secondary education or enter the workforce directly.
Students are engaged to be 21st century learners who actively explore material to acquire and comprehend new knowledge through critical, creative and inquisitive thinking. Decision-making and problem-solving skills are focused on and students are often expected to work on projects that help them see how others perform these cognitive tasks. Students are taught to develop interactive skills that effectively articulate and communicate thoughts and ideas. Visual, technological, and informational literacy are also emphasized.

Any parent is welcome to communicate their ideas and concerns on these specific topics with committee members who then serve as liaisons to the district.
Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Private Colleges
Many students shy away from applying to private colleges because they think the expense is too great. While it’s true that tuition at most private colleges is higher than at public universities, a competitive student may qualify for scholarships and aid that will bring the cost way down, so that it is comparable to a public university. Many students consider the expense worthwhile because of the experience they have at a private college. Private colleges tend to be more focused on individualizing students’ experience. This can include academic support for students. Most private colleges are smaller than public, and therefore have smaller class sizes, which can be beneficial to many students. There are many benefits to both private and public colleges, depending on the student and the type of experience they look to have.
