Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Carbondale District Curriculum
The school’s curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core Standards in English language and mathematics. In English language arts, the curriculum emphasizes the reading of nonfiction and complex texts and the writing of analytical essays. Students gather information and use evidence to support their claims while also expanding their vocabularies. This encourages students to be critical readers and writers.
In mathematics classes, the curriculum focuses on key topics in depth so that basic concepts are mastered before moving on to more advanced topics. Algebraic patterning and relationships, geometry and measurement, and data analysis are emphasized. The hope is that students will be able to apply their math skills to real-world problems and challenges. The science curriculum is based on the Next Generation Science Standards, which are rigorous and intended to provide students with the skills and processes of observation, hypothesis testing, reporting on findings and other elements of the scientific process.

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: What Does the Transcript Tell Colleges?
The most important piece of a college application is the transcript for two primary reasons. One, the transcript gives an applicant’s GPA, though that GPA is tempered by course selection, and Two, the rigor of the applicant’s course selection. GPA can be weighted or unweighted. Weighted means that more credit is given for some classes, usually Advanced Placement or Honors classes. This is a misleading idea because colleges are going to unweight and reconfigure GPA however they want. They might ignore certain classes, as well. The rigor of the course selection has a lot to do with how the college looks at the transcript. A student who has a very high GPA in fairly non-rigorous classes isn’t going to be considered as strongly as a student with a high GPA in rigorous classes. A college profile accompanies the transcript. This document tells the college what courses are offered, which helps them determine what constitutes a rigorous course selection for a particular school.
