Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glenwood District Curriculum
The Literacy curriculum supports many of the overarching curricular goals. Students are taught how to comprehend and analyze both literary and informational texts. They learn about how to locate information, how to assess its validity, and how to incorporate other ideas into their works while properly citing their sources. They also learn how to write about and discuss ideas using their critical thinking abilities to make their points. Communication skills, including speaking and listening, are fostered throughout students education.
The curriculum is designed to scaffold student knowledge as they progress in their learning within each subject. Students are able to rely on prior knowledge to understand new concepts. The students are expected to be able to apply and transfer knowledge in order to solve problems creatively. The expectations for students are clearly stated and are well-researched. Overall, the school strives to provide rich environments, experiences and activities for learning and to provide work that is challenging, applicable to real life, and blended with other disciplines.

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: Early Decision II
More and more students are apply Early Decision in order to reap the many benefits, such as higher acceptance rates. But not everyone will make the cut, and many of those who don’t are still extremely strong students. Early Decision II is a way colleges have devised to fix this problem. It’s essentially the same as Early Decision except that it isn’t that early—instead of a deadline of November 1, the deadline is usually mid-January or even later. This allows students who weren’t accepted at their top school another shot at all the benefits of Early Decision. Colleges tend to favor Early Decision and Early Decision II, along with Early Action, very heavily, so acceptance rates are still quite strong—much higher than they are with Regular Decision applications.
