Educating Our Parents: Understanding the River Forest District Curriculum
The school hopes to create a community of lifelong learners who will be competitive in our ever increasingly global economy. Oak Park and River Forest High School follows the Illinois Common Core curriculum, which is an internationally benchmarked, rigorous curriculum. This curriculum dictates that all students learn the same materials, but it doesn’t dictate how teachers prepare their lessons.
The focus is on teaching students how to learn, letting them take responsibility for their own learning so that they will be engaged and want to learn, and encouraging students to be involved in their community. The school also focuses not only on developing the students’ critical thinking skills, but on helping them to make good decisions in regards to their own health as well as in social situations.
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: The Importance of Transcripts
The high school transcript is looked at as being the most important part of a college application because it is believed to be the clearest indicator of an applicant’s future success. A transcript includes a list of the classes taken, the grades received, and the overall grade point average (GPA). The list of classes helps the college determine how rigorous a student’s schedule has been. Has s/he taken the most challenging classes offered? Has s/he taken challenging classes in a particular discipline? The college is looking to see if the student has taken risks. This is an indicator of intellectual curiosity. The grades, themselves, are indicators of work ethic. If the students performed poorly in classes that shouldn’t have been particularly challenging, then this says something about the student’s probably future in college. Of course, there are extenuating circumstances. Students often take college more seriously than they did high school, and admissions officers know this. This is why the other elements of an application are so essential as well.
