Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Lenox District Curriculum
In Mathematics, the curriculum focuses on a greater depth of instruction on fewer topics within a school year, beginning with basic concepts like numbers and operations to ensure students have mastery of the foundations of mathematics before moving onto more advanced topics in middle school and high school. The hope is that students will have opportunities to apply their math skills to real world problems.
The curriculum offers a clear set of expectations for what students should know at the end of each grade level to ensure that all students meet similarly high standards. In English Language Arts, the curriculum emphasizes reading nonfiction and complex texts as well as writing analytic essays so that students develop the ability to gather information and use evidence to back their claims while also expanding their vocabularies. Students are encouraged to become critical readers and persuasive writers.

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: Advanced Placement
Advanced Placement (AP) classes seem like a great idea. Students get the opportunity to take college-level classes and get credit for them. Some students are even able to complete a semester’s worth of classes, or even more, before graduating high school. But AP credit can be more complicated than it seems. Some colleges don’t actually except AP credits; sure, it looks good for a student to have done well on an AP exam, but the college won’t actually count it as credit towards a class. Some colleges will simply place students in a higher level class because of AP exams. Some colleges want to make sure students are taking their curriculum, so they don’t let students place out of core classes. And, of course, not every high school offers AP classes. Some offer several AP opportunities, whereas others, usually because of size, don’t offer very many. This won’t affect a college’s decision to accept or reject a student, but it does give some students an advantage others lack.
