Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Carterville District Curriculum
The curriculum teaches skills students will need to be competitive in our ever-growing, global community, such as strong math skills, science literacy, critical thinking skills, critical reading, and analytical writing skills. Students learn how to think logically, how to form intelligent opinions based on facts and observations, how to research and back up those opinions with evidence, and how to communicate those opinions effectively. The school believes that all students should be given opportunities for success and provide a variety of options that will connect all students with their post-secondary goals.
One goal of the curriculum is for students to develop independence in learning and be able to locate information and resources that will help them learn new information. Personal leadership is also imbued into the curriculum and students are able to work within the community to develop their leadership skills. Respect for diversity is also taught. Students are taught to make healthy and beneficial choices, not only for themselves but regarding their interactions with others, which should be respectful.

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: Recommendations
One of the steps to applying to college is gathering letters of recommendations. Most letters should be written by teachers who are familiar with the applicants’ academic work. If a student has significant work or volunteering experience, a letter from a supervisor may also be helpful. Most colleges require from one to three recommendations per applicant. These are meant to come from teachers in junior or senior year core curriculum classes. Additional recommendations are usually accepted, but are honestly rarely useful unless they give real insight into the student that hasn’t been shown elsewhere. Colleges want recommendations from classroom teachers because they want to see how the student works and behaves in class. The student’s work ethic, study habits, attitude, intellectual curiosity, and willingness to seek out support when needed all help gives the college insight into whether the student is truly ready for college.
