Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hyde Park District Curriculum
Hyde Park schools’ math curriculum prioritizes firm knowledge and understanding of core mathematics concepts over a tenuous grasp of a broad range of mathematics concepts. The curriculum introduces students to core mathematics concepts in the earliest grades. From there, students go on to further develop their understandings of those concepts and develop a wider set of problem-solving processes. They learn to work with algebraic equations, apply theorems in geometry and learn about statistics and mathematic models used for forecasting different matter.
Hyde Park schools’ English Language Arts curriculum values reading and writing, but does not seek to develop students’ abilities in those areas only. Rather, it requires that students who are able to read closely and attentive, and who are able to write about what they read, also develop important speaking, listening, and language skills. Research skills, learning to evaluate the quality of information, and being able to incorporate others ideas into one’s own writing is emphasized during high school.

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: Sliding Through Summer
You may or may not be familiar with the education phenomenon called “the summer slide.” It is well known among teachers and school administrators alike, but is rarely discussed outside of school environs. That’s a shame because it is something that parents need to know about. “The summer slide” describes what happens to a school year’s worth of learning when summer hits. It seems to start sliding out of children’s heads. Most of this learning is lost to disuse. Students, after a hard school year, decide to “take it easy” and unburden themselves from the weight of reading, math, and writing for a few months. Of course, every student needs a break, but students who follow the time-honored summer tradition of “all break, no practice” often find that they have fallen behind when the next school year starts. A few minutes of work each day is a small price to pay for being on track when the next school year begins.
