Northbrook, Illinois Tutoring Programs

Get started with SchoolTutoring Academy's tutoring programs for Northbrook, Illinois students.

Northbrook District and Curriculum

The Northbrook schools attempt to create a comprehensive high school experience for students by focusing on three distinct areas: Academics, Athletics, and Activities. Academic success is a top priority for students with core academic courses in the areas of English, mathematics, science, social studies, and world language; students may also pursue special interest classes such as debate, architecture, automotives, and graphic design. Student development is advanced by supporting the enhancement of excellence through unique initiatives.

We currently cover the following Northbrook-area school districts: Northbrook ESD 27, Northbrook SD 28, Northbrook/Glenview SD 30, Northfield TWP HSD 225, and West Northfield SD 31.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Northbrook District Curriculum

The curriculum of the schools is based on the Illinois Common Core standards. In English language arts, the focus is on analytical reading and interpretation of complex texts. In mathematics, the focus is on key concepts applied to real-world situations when possible. The science curriculum is based on the Next Generation Science Standards. Classes focus on the scientific process, observation, experimentation, and exploring how science has changed society and how innovation occurs.

Students are also encouraged to succeed inside and outside of the classroom through numerous athletic and activities programs in order to promote healthy minds and bodies. The goal of the curriculum is to create lifelong learners who will be prepared for secondary education and employment in a global economy. The curriculum promotes achievement in students regardless of learning style or needs and allows teachers creativity in how they deliver the learning objectives to their students.

Chalk Talk: Understanding the Transcript

The high school transcript is the single most important document colleges use to determine whether they’ll accept or reject an applicant. There are several elements to the transcript students might not completely understand. The main element is the list of classes. Transcripts include a listing of every class a student has taken in his or her high school career. Colleges will use this to determine the difficulty of a student’s class load and whether the student has challenged him or herself. This can depend on what classes are available to take and the student’s interested. A supporting document called a school profile tells the college what classes are available. The grades that are given in each class are used to compute the student’s grade point average, or GPA. Again, the GPA is considered through the lens of the student’s course selection. If a student has a very high GPA with a very light course selection, for example, it might mean less to a college than a more rigorous course selection, even with a lower GPA.
