Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Prospect Heights District Curriculum
The curriculum follows the Illinois Common Core Curriculum, so students are expected to understand and apply a core body of knowledge and skills across the curriculum and take responsibility for their own learning. In humanities classes, students read for comprehension and synthesis and learn to evaluate sources and gather information to support their written arguments in essays. Students are taught to be critical thinkers who evaluate and refine strategies for solving problems.
Students are also expected to treat themselves and others respectfully and accept constructive criticism. Students should manage and evaluate their own behavior, demonstrate ethical behavior, and take responsibility for their actions. Students are expected to demonstrate positive choices for physical and emotional health, and demonstrate respect for other individuals, cultures, races, and genders.

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: Types of Applications
There are four main types of college applications, each with their own quirks and advantages. The simplest type is Regular Decision. The deadline for Regular Decision might be as late as March 1st, or sometimes even later. Students simply apply with no special accommodations, though students might have to wait quite a while to receive a response. Rolling applications are applications that can be sent at just about any time. They tend to have a very quick turnaround, usually three weeks. Early Action applications have an early deadline. Because they’re early, fewer other applicants will have applied, which means the pool of competitors is smaller. Restricted Early Action is a rare kind of Early Action application in which the student is only allowed to apply to one school. Once a decision has been made, the student is then free to apply to other schools or accept an offer of admission. Early Decision applications are binding, early applications, which means the student agrees to attend that college if accepted.
