Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Collinsville District Curriculum
The Collinsville Public Schools believe that all students should be given opportunities for achievement, not only academically, but socially and in extracurricular activities. Well-rounded students are more likely to be engaged citizens with diverse interests. The curriculum focuses on analytical thinking skills and analytical writing skills, so that students to encourage orderly, direct thinking and expression. Students are challenged to move outside their comfort zones.
Scientific and technological literacy is emphasized, as is a firm understanding of math. In English classes, students read complex works and write complex papers, drawing from quotes and examples from the text to support their ideas. Students have opportunities to express themselves as well. In history classes, students are taught perspectives on local, state, and world history to help them compete in a growing world economy.

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: Rolling Applications vs. Early Decision
For most application types, colleges set a deadline, and they rarely respond to applications until that deadline has passed. Early Decision (ED) applications are an example of this. The deadline is usually November 1st. This is earlier than other applications types, and because of that, students are given preference. ED are also binding, which means that the applicant agrees to attend this college if accepted. Many students like ED because it tends to have a quick response—often by the end of December, and, of course, they like the preference given to ED applicants. Rolling applications, on the other hand, have a very quick turnaround. Rolling applications might open as early as September or October and end as late as March. Students are free to apply at any point during that time. When they do apply, they receive a response usually within three to four weeks. Rolling applications also aren’t binding, which can be a plus in certain ways.
