Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Jacksonville District Curriculum
The curriculum attempts to maintain pathways to success for students by aligning standards, assessment, and instruction across curricula and with other schools across the world. All students are engaged in problem-solving, critical thinking, and are given the capacity to build on their knowledge. Problems and lessons are also connected to real-world contexts to enhance the relevancy of learning.
The Jacksonville High School curriculum is intended to prepare all students to transition successfully into college and careers through consistent learning goals, assessments of course standards and outcomes, and consistent use of best practice instructional strategies. Students are expected to take responsibility for their own learning in a supportive, safe environment that encourages engagement. The staff also provides intervention strategies addressing achievement gaps which may entail personalized lessons and learning environments which address each student’s academic, social and emotional needs.

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: College Planning: Public vs. Private
The biggest difference between public and private colleges is that public colleges are funded by the state. This means that the curriculum is evaluated and somewhat controlled by the state, and that a certain percentage of students must be accepted from within the state. This means that it can be easier for in-state students to get into a public school. Public schools tend to focus more on standardized test scores. But private schools tend to be more holistic in their approach to judging applicants, so a borderline student may have a better shot at a private school. Private schools tend to be more expensive, but they also offer more scholarships and financial aid to competitive students. Public schools tend to be less expensive than private schools, but they offer less financial aid as well. Public schools are also usually organized into universities, whereas private schools might be colleges or universities. Public schools are considered to be larger than private, but this isn’t always the case either.
