Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Des Peres District Curriculum
Students receive a comprehensive, rigorous, and competitive curriculum, with clearly defined expectations for all its students. Teachers are given the freedom to refine their lesson plans to fit the needs of students in order to support and challenge them individually, whether that mean remedial support or more challenging work. Across all disciplines, critical thinking skills are stressed along with analytic writing, and science literacy and mathematical literacy are also emphasized, so that students develop the skills and know-how necessary for success.
Students are taught to write intelligently and thoughtfully about a variety of texts and to demonstrate strong communication skills across the board. The goal of the school is to mold students into life-long learners who take responsibility for their own learning and also become engaged citizens who demand success in their own lives after graduation.

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: Asking for Letters of Recommendations
Most colleges want from one to three recommendations, which means a good rule of thumb is to ask for two. One of the toughest questions to consider when applying to college is who to ask for a recommendation. Of course, a teacher of a subject that falls in line with the student’s future major is a no-brainer. A student applying with an undecided major might be especially unsure. A general rule of thumb for unsure students is to ask one teacher from a humanities class and one from a math or science class. That way, the college application committee can get insight into the applicant’s writing ability and creativity from the humanities teacher, and problem solving, class performance, and work ethic, among other things, from the other teacher.
