Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Benton District Curriculum
The curriculum follows the Illinois Learning Standards, which are rigorous and competitive standards meant to instill in students the skills, learning, and problem-solving techniques they need to succeed in our increasingly global economy. Critical thinking skills are stressed as well as analytical writing skills. Science literacy, working through the process of discovery, and familiarity with technology are also stressed so that students are prepared to face the challenges of the work force.
Benton Consolidated High School also offers many extracurricular activities for students, from men’s and women’s varsity sports to visual and performing arts to vocal music and band, as well as academically themed clubs. These activities are intended to help create and encourage diverse interests in students. Community service is also offered. Students who become involved and engaged in the community are more likely to be engaged and active in the community after graduation, leading to better citizens.

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: Early Decision II
There are many types of decision that a student can apply for when applying for college. Early Decision (ED) applications are very popular with applicants because of all the benefits they give. Early Decision applicants have significantly higher acceptance rates, for example, and they tend to receive decisions within a few weeks of applying. Because Early Decision is binding, students can only apply to one school at a time this way, but if they’re not accepted, it can seem like a real waste. That’s where Early Decision II comes in. Early Decision II mirrors Early Decision but with a later application due date. It’s a second round of Early Decision applications, allowing students who’ve been released from Early Decision elsewhere to apply to a different college, maybe their second choice, with all the benefits of Early Decision.
