Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Johnsburg District Curriculum
The Johnsburg School District curriculum focuses on teaching critical thinking skills, critical reading skills, analytical writing skills, and science and math literacy. Students are given information to read, evaluate and discuss. They form their own opinions and gather evidence to support those opinions, and create presentations to demonstrate what they learned. They also learn effective communication skills in a variety of formats so that they can take in and offer accurate, useful information.
Johnsburg High School also offers many extracurricular activities in academic competition, community outreach, arts, and athletic opportunities for students in order to help them become well-rounded, engaged citizens. Students can play sports and gain valuable leadership skills as well as learning to operate in a team environment. Community service is also stressed so that students learn the value of giving and helping others. Students who are involved in their community are more likely to become involved, engaged citizens.

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: Private College
A private college is one that is funded by student tuition, primarily. Because of this, private colleges tend to treat students more like customers, meaning that they are focused on the students’ overall experience. This also means that private colleges tend to be much more expensive than public universities, though there are exceptions. Private colleges tend to be smaller than public universities, though there are exceptions to this as well. Private colleges also tend to be more selective than public universities, which is part of their appeal to some. Because of their size, private colleges tend to offer smaller class sizes and opportunities for students to bond with professors more easily, which can lead to more opportunities for students.
