Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Monticello District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards are rigorous, progressive curriculum which is intended, along with its extracurricular programs, to encourage a lifelong appreciation for learning in students and prepare them for success after graduation. The curriculum follows the Illinois Learning Standards, which are intended to provide a competitive education to all students. Students learn critical thinking skills, critical reading skills, analytical writing and strong communication skills, science literacy, and become familiar with technology.
Teachers have the freedom to modify their lesson plans to fit the individual needs of students, whether that means helping struggling students to catch up to grade level, or helping advanced students stay challenged and engaged. The extracurricular programs, which provide many academic, community service-based, and arts groups are intended to offer additional opportunities for leadership and success for students. Different students learn in different ways, and activities outside of class offer necessary and useful opportunities for students to learn.

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 College
There are a number of steps that students will want to have in line when they begin applying to college. First of all, applying for financial aid and scholarships needs to be planned for and students need to know the deadlines they face for those. Students also have to prepare to take tests like the SAT or ACT. Some colleges rely heavily on standardized testing. State colleges, for example, tend not to accept a student who doesn’t do well-enough on testing, and yet will often blanket-accept students who meet the minimum requirement, even if their grade point average leaves something to be desired. Other colleges have done away with standardized testing entirely and require an essay, interview, graded paper, or some other demonstration of ability. Lastly, students will want to ask teachers they know well for letters of recommendation.
