Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lake Forest District Curriculum
One curricular goal is for students to be able to accept constructive criticism within these groups and manage and evaluate their own behavior as a group member. Community involvement is deemed very important, and the hope is that students will act responsibly, participate in community service, and exercise the rights and responsibilities of citizenship on a local level and in the global environment.
The curriculum is intended to produce students who are capable of utilizing a wealth of knowledge across various topics. Students are taught comprehensive research skills, and how to access information for different subject areas, so that they can college data, analyze it, and use it to support their theses when writing analytical essays. Therefore, students read complex, nonfiction texts for comprehension and synthesis. It is hoped that students will take responsibility for their own learning.

Lake Forest District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The districts curriculum strives to produce students who are responsible individuals, who demonstrate ethical behavior in all situations and accept responsibility for their actions, and who demonstrate positive choices for physical and emotional health. Students are encouraged to be collaborative workers who treat themselves and others with respect, are capable of working within a variety of groups to achieve their goals while assuming various roles effectively in a cooperative setting. Students should be socially responsible citizens who demonstrate respect for individuals, cultures, races, and genders.

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: Test Optional Applications
Despite the growing movement among colleges to adopt test-optional applications, it’s difficult to put together a list of colleges that doesn’t include some that require standardized tests, especially if you’re applying for a specific program. Test-optional applications also usually require something in lieu of standardized tests, such as a graded written exam (i.e. an essay) or an interview. This is because the research which shows that standardized tests don’t necessarily determine a student’s viability in college DO show that the essay portion of these exams does help reflect a student’s viability. Some test-optional colleges supply their own additional essay prompt. As for interviews, those are a good idea, regardless. Some colleges only offer test-optional applications to students whose GPA is above a certain level. Test-optional applications are a great idea, but since so few schools offer them, standardized testing is still a necessity for most students.
