Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oak Park District Curriculum
By high school, students take required courses in Algebra, Geometry, and electives in Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Introduction to Computer Science, and Integrated Math in addition to AP Math courses for those who qualify. In both Algebra and Geometry, students in High School should be able to apply what they are learning to real life situations and business concepts. In Language Arts, there are literature and writing courses but the two skills are taught in an integrated fashion in all classes and the expectation is that students will be able to respond critically and analytically to what they read.
The school also believes in promoting a sense of community and good citizenship in students as well as equity and fairness and an appreciation of diversity. The school sees itself as a communicator of these common values to students in a partnership between the student, family, school, and community. This partnership is furthered by encouraging participation in all school activities and functions by students and teachers as well as parents.

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: EDII: The Facts
An Early Decision (ED) application is a binding college application. Basically, the student signs a contract which states that if s/he is accepted by this particular college, then s/he will attend. ED applications carry several benefits. Because they are early applications, the applicant is competing against a smaller pool of students. Also, these applications demonstrate a lot of interest in the college, which is attractive to them. But what happens if the student is rejected or wait listed? In that instance, the contract is void and the student is free to apply elsewhere and accept any offers of admittance. EDII applications are ED applications that have a later deadline than regular ED applications. These can be very beneficial to a student because it allows the applicant to go ahead and apply to his/her first choice college, and if s/he isn’t accepted, s/he can go ahead and apply to a second school but still get the benefits of an Early Decision application.
