Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gurnee District Curriculum
The Warren Township High School curriculum is derived from the Illinois Common Core Standards for English language and mathematics and the Next Generation Science Standards. In English Language Arts classes, students read nonfiction and complex texts focusing on comprehension and information gathering. Students are expected to collect and organize information as well as analyze it. Students are taught to write clearly and expressively to share their insights and arguments intelligently and with thoughtful support.
In Mathematics and Science classes student are expected to use critical thinking to solve problems and to apply their learning to real-world problems and life experiences. Students should be equipped to enter post-secondary education and the work force as members of a global community, and it is the hope of the districts that students will be prepared to do so.

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: The College Essay
Whether you’re applying to a state school, a big university, or a small private college, most colleges require an essay, and those that don’t require it will consider one. It’s a good idea to go ahead and send one even if it isn’t required. Most students will “recycle” one essay to use for several colleges by reworking major themes to fit different prompts, and this is acceptable. The essay is important because it is one of the only opportunities an applicant will have to truly differentiate him/herself from other applicants. It’s an opportunity for the student to speak in his/her own voice. Colleges and universities that accept the common application will accept an essay based on its prompts, though they might ask for an additional supplemental essay. The prompt for this supplement is often something like “Why do you want to attend this college?” This is a difficult topic to answer creatively because most students will have the same things to say: I like the programs. I like the location. I like campus. How to stand out? Try to really personalize the essay and focus on things that matter to you, rather than just throwing in some facts found on the college’s website.
