Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pickneyville District Curriculum
The schools offer a strong curriculum for students to ensure their competitiveness in their post-secondary pursuits. Students learn critical thinking and critical reading skills, analytical writing skills, and science literacy, in addition to strong communication skills. Students study mathematical concepts in order to understand how the math works, rather than just memorizing formulas. They study the world around them, using scientific processes to understand and evaluate how and why things work.
The Illinois Learning Standards prepares students to become independent learners so that in high school they can exercise their options for learning that will best support their goals. The hope is that students will become self-guided learners who take responsibility for their own learning. Students will be able to choose from rigorous academic options such as Advanced Placement and dual enrollment courses or courses that will prepare them to enter the workforce upon graduation with the problem-solving and communication skills they will need for success.

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: Transcripts
A high school transcript is probably considered the most important part of a college application by college admissions committees. The transcript contains the student’s course list and grade point average (GPA). The course list can be very telling because it gives insight into how rigorous the student’s studies have been. Colleges use the school profile to help determine this. If the student has a high GPA in classes that aren’t consider that rigorous, then this is misleading. Similarly, if a student has a lower GPA but in rigorous classes, this can also be misleading. The hope, of course, is that a student will have a high GPA in rigorous classes. And the rigor of classes—and the desirability of those classes for a particular student—have a lot to do with what the student intends to study in college.
