Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Crestwood District Curriculum
Crestwood's school districts also believes in using high expectations as a component of fairness by clearly stating standards for achievement and dictating them as being equally available for all students. The districts strive to provide a rigorous but safe learning environment for its students with opportunities for achievement available for all. Students are expected to master a core of knowledge representing the essential skills and knowledge within each discipline, and are tasked to work on projects and other authentic learning methods to instill this knowledge.
The school encourages students to take responsibility for their own learning so that they will become engaged learners. Students are also encouraged to take an interest in their community, not only locally, but on a global level. In these ways, students are prepared to compete in the global economy, whether they pursue post-secondary education or enter the workforce.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Crestwood students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director.

Crestwood District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The districts believe that, in order to be successful in a rapidly changing world full of technological breakthroughs, an explosion of information, and a rapidly expanding global economy, students need to master not only the basic, necessary information they’ve traditionally learned, but they will also need to acquire new ways to learn that will serve them throughout their lives. The school believes in providing a clear set of standards and expectations for student learning to most effectively utilize the increasingly scarce resources that support education.

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: Honors vs. AP Classes
Advanced Placement (AP) classes are high school classes that follow a set curriculum, concluding in a standardized exam. Teachers must be trained and certified in the curriculum to teach these classes. This curriculum is approved by colleges, and colleges therefore will recognize AP classes as standardized and considers them college-level. Some colleges will give college credit if a student scores high on the final exam, which is scored from 1-5, a 4 or 5 being considered high. If a student scores 3 or higher on 3 AP exams, s/he is considered an AP Scholar, which certainly looks good to an admissions committee. Some colleges will consider a student as having completed basic requirements in that course, so even though they still have to take a class, they are “bumped up” to a higher level. It is possible for a student to enter college as a sophomore because of these college credits. Even colleges that don’t necessarily give credit for AP scores recognize them as an achievement, so they benefit the student in this way.
