Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Crete District Curriculum
The Math standards used by the district are based on the Common Core Standards for Math. This curriculum framework was developed to address concerns that the math curriculum across the nation was a mile wide and inch deep and has increased the rigor of the expectations. The curriculum uses both high-quality national standards and looked to other nations with high performing math students. An additional part of the high school math curriculum covers the topics of mathematical functions and modeling.
The elementary math curriculum prepares students for this increased focus on mathematical thinking. Topics in data analysis are introduced early and give students the background upon which they can create mathematical models that are used to predict outcomes or probabilities. The early introduction of algebraic patterning, measurement, and geometric relationships helps students understand how functions contribute to their ability to solve problems. In high school, the geometry curriculum requires that students use their ability to solve and write algebraic equations to solve geometric problems.
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: College Application Types
There are many different types of college application, with varying qualities. One of the biggest differences is the due date for each one. Some of the most popular application types include Regular Decision, Early Decision, and Early Action. Regular Decision due dates tend to be the latest. They used to be December 1st, but with the proliferation of different application types, due dates for Regular Decision are getting later and later, often in January or February, some even in March. Other application types are due as early as November 1st, with the odd college having a due date in October. Some application types don’t have set due dates, but rather a range of dates that might start in the early fall and extend through the winter months.
