Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glendale District Curriculum
The GRHSD uses Essential Learning Targets to identify and evaluate teaching and learning. Current targets meet the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction’s (DPI) standards. In alignment with the DPI, the district has emphasized improvements in literacy and mathematics, in addition to technology and information to prepare for the state’s College and Career Readiness initiative. The MDIHSD curriculum provides students with instruction rooted in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
The NUSD, which consists of students at the high school, has a wealth of educational opportunities. Because the school serves approximately 1,140 students from three districts, its course offerings are vast. Students have the opportunity to take accelerated, honors, or Advanced Placement courses. To graduate, students must earn the following credits: English (4), science (2), mathematics (2), social studies (3), health/physical education (2), fine arts (.5-1), career education (.5-1), and IT essentials (.5).

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: How to Successfully Prepare for a Test
Taking tests are unavoidable, and today, students are taking tests that are more meaningful. With so much depending upon test data, students’ anxiety levels can interfere with their performances. It is important to prepare for any exam in a practical manner, focusing on test-taking skills and test-day relaxation techniques. First, focus on preparing yourself physically for taking the exam. Go to bed early the night before, eat a good breakfast, and give yourself enough time to get to the test early. Rushing will add stress to the situation. If possible, practice some breathing or other meditative exercises. Last, dress comfortably and in layers; temperatures vary at testing sites and no one wants the environment to spoil good preparation. The second part of successful test taking is to utilize the following skills: 1.Read the directions; 2. Answer questions according to your knowledge—easy first, eliminate incorrect answers; 3.Create an outline before writing essay responses; and 4. Review your answers. However, the most important tip to always remember is to trust yourself.
