Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harwood Heights District Curriculum
Students are asked to learn and work in multiple settings and in multiple ways. The school districts recognize that learning is enhanced by conduct, character, and achievement of its students. Students are informed of their current performance levels and set goals to improve. Students are held accountable for their work and behavior and encouraged to develop pride in their school. Students also understand their learning styles, strengths, needs and challenges and access resources to help them achieve.
Collaboration to improve student learning is important to the district curricular goals. The schools recognize that student learning is enhanced by a diverse and challenging curriculum which addresses mastery of subject-area content that integrates acquisition of critical life and thinking skills. The curriculum enables students to broaden their perspective in order to understand diverse cultures within the school as well as cultures and beyond their local community. It also cultivates active student learning and encourages and supports individual interests.

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: Fast Aps
One of the biggest stresses of applying to colleges is how much work it requires to produce all of the various elements of an application, and then, having to wait so long for a decision. Fast Aps are an attempt to combat this. Not every college offers them, and they’re usually only offered by invitation. Basically, a college contacts interested (or sometimes not interested) students and offers them a shortened application with a quick response. Often, the application fee is waived. The application is shorter and usually requires fewer elements—maybe a short essay is required, but not always, and recommendations might not even be required. Basically, the college is making its decision based on the transcript and standardized test scores.
