Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glendale Heights District Curriculum
It is hoped that students will be equipped to enter their futures as knowledgeable persons who understand and apply a core body of knowledge and skills across the curriculum, read for comprehension and synthesis, use a variety of techniques, resources, and technology to gather information, collect, organize, analyze, and retain information. Students are encouraged to become critical thinkers who evaluate and refine strategies to solve problems and transfer this acquired knowledge to life experiences.
The curriculum also stresses that students act as responsible individuals who demonstrate ethical behavior, accept responsibility for their actions, demonstrate positive choices for their own physical and emotional health, and in a larger sense, act as socially responsible citizens. Students should demonstrate respect for individuals, cultures, races, and genders and exercise the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and participate in community service.

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: Community Colleges Today
Some students are hesitant to attend a community college because they feel like it’s not a “real” college, since anyone with a high school diploma can attend. But community colleges offer many opportunities for students that are worth considering. One of the primary considerations is that community colleges tend to cost 1/10th as much as even a state college. The classes offered at community colleges tend to be basic classes, the core curriculum classes every student has to take, so students who are unsure what they might major in can get these classes out of the way inexpensively while also “getting their feet wet” at a community college. Class sizes tend to be fairly small for this general education classes as well; at a large state school, some of these classes might have a hundred or more students in them, whereas community colleges tend to have thirty to forty students per class. One final consideration is that community colleges tend to be close to home, which saves on living expenses as well.
