Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Blue Island District Curriculum
The Illinois Common Core Learning Standards explores key concepts and principles of life sciences, physical science, and earth and space sciences, as well as issues of science, technology, and society in historical and contemporary contexts. Math classes focus on key concepts and a greater depth of instruction on fewer topics within a school year in order to more fully explore those topics.
Overall, the Common Core Learning Standards utilize foundational concepts across the curriculum and emphasize applying these problems to real-world situations. The curriculum is meant to encourage critical thinking across disciplines and give students the educational foundations they will need for college. The schools maintain high expectations for student learning, requiring students to learn at high levels while the school also provides the necessary support and instruction to reach those standards so that they deliver equitable access and support to academic and co-curricular opportunities to maximize individual student success.

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: The Role of Transcripts During College Admissions
The most important part of any college application is the transcript. This is the main thing any college will look at. There are several things the college will consider; one is the GPA. This is an average of scores the applicant has received in all his/her classes. GPA is more complicated than it sounds; some high schools offer more credit for certain classes (called weighted GPA) but a college will configure the GPA their own way, perhaps weighting or unweighting or even ignoring certain classes. The GPA is contingent upon the course selection. Colleges look at how challenging a student’s classes have been. This can mean different things for different kids, and at different schools. It can also depend upon the student’s intended major. One way the college can determine these things is through the school profile, which explains what courses are offered and tells a little about the school.
