Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Murphysboro District Curriculum
Murphysboro Community Unit School District maintains a rigorous, competitive curriculum that challenges students at whatever level they are working on, while providing clear expectations for student learning. Teachers are given the flexibility to model their lessons to fit the individual needs of students to ensure success, whether that be providing advanced work to keep a student challenged, or remedial work to help a student catch up to grade level. Interventions are also available so to ensure every student achieves the learning goals.
Students will take many assessments during their school years and the tests are aligned closely to the curriculum to gauge that students are achieving each objective. Students will take the PARCC test in Math and Literacy starting in grade 3 and annually until high school. There is also the Dynamic Learning Maps Alternate Assessment available to students who have an IEP that calls for an alternate assessment. High school students will take PARCC once and also the ACT Plus Writing so they can demonstrate their proficiency in written communication.

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 Decision Applications
Early Decision (ED) is an early college application with a deadline in early November, usually. It’s binding, which means that students must attend that college if accepted. Response times are usually fairly quick, and by mid-December, students know if they’re accepted. There are many benefits to Early Decision applications, including a higher acceptance rate. But what if a student isn’t accepted? They are then free to apply Early Decision elsewhere. The problem is that the application deadline has usually passed at that point. This is where Early Decision II comes into play. Early Decision II is a second round of Early Decision applications, usually due in mid-January or February. Early Decision II offers the same advantages as Early Decision does.
