Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Monticello District Curriculum
Drew Central uses the Common Core Standards and will soon implement the PARCC assessment to replace the current state test. The district has its own website dedicated to math instruction at each grade level from K-8. This includes a list of skills students should gain proficiency in during each of the four quarters of the school year; for example, one of the things third graders should know by the third nine-week period of the year is their multiplication facts.
Monticello is committed to 21st century learning. The district’s websites suggests a free educational mobile app daily and offers a “technology tip” weekly. It also has posted documents describing different types of instructional technology and apps that can be used in various content areas. Additionally, parents can register their students into the 21st Century Community Learning Center program, which includes academic support services and enrichment activities such as technology use.
Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.
SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Monticello students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.

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.

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: Tips for Applying to Colleges
The college application process may be one of the most stressful situations some students will have in their young lives. Here are a few tips to ensure that you give yourself the best chance possible to be accepted by the colleges you apply to: Know the school’s requirements, meaning GPA and test scores. This information may be more difficult to find than you might think, but dig your heels in until you uncover what you are looking for. More and more universities are accepting ACT scores alone, but several schools still prefer or require that the SAT be taken. Take the application essay, which many schools require, very seriously. This is a way to showcase yourself to the school, so create a story about yourself. Depending on the essay prompt, you may also have the opportunity to portray your knowledge of the school and academic program you may interested in and show not only that you have a strong opinion of it but why you favor it.
