Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lincolnwood District Curriculum
All students are given opportunities for academic and personal achievement. Niles West High School’s curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core Standards, which are internationally refereed standards intended to give students the opportunity to compete on a global level. In humanities classes, students read primarily nonfiction texts, with fewer novels or poems. Students also write primarily analytical, persuasive, or informational essays, as opposed to creative writing, although they are introduced to multiple styles of writing.
These classes focus on critical thinking and critical reading skills so that students read proactively and analyze their reading in order to develop theses, gather evidence, and craft persuasive arguments. This sort of organization and structured thinking will serve them well in the future, whether they attend college or immediately enter the workforce.

By providing a variety of class offerings and extra-curricular activities, the school hopes to help students develop not only their minds, but their physical, cultural, and emotional selves.

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: Early Applications
Applying to college is a stressful time for students, and applying early might seem even more stressful. But there are many advantages to it. Applying early gives the student an opportunity to complete the process quickly, instead of dragging it out over months. Also, there are many advantages to early applications. Many colleges offer incentives for early applicants, such as waived fees, fewer requirements, and higher acceptance rates. Early applicants tend to have “first crack” at financial aid, as well, and this can be very beneficial considering that financial aid money is a limited resource that essentially goes “first come, first served.” Since they’ve finished their applications, they can move on to complete their financial aid and have that out of the way, and early applicants will receive the college’s decision sooner as well, which frees students up to move on to other matters, such as housing or work study programs.
